Shadow foreign minister Hilary Benn has said he will not resign from Labour's front bench - despite backing airstrikes in Syria, opposing the position taken by leader Jeremy Corbyn.
It comes after Mr Corbyn provoked a backlash from Labour MPs by saying he could not support the military action, despite the shadow cabinet not reaching an agreed position.
Benn spoke to BBC R4's Today programme this morning, after admitting yesterday there was a "compelling" case for joining coalition airstrikes against the so-called Islamic State militant group in Syria.
