Tony Benn, the late father of Hilary Benn, would be "burling in his grave" over his son's speech supporting UK airstrikes in the Commons, former SNP leader Alex Salmond has said.
Mr Salmond told LBC Radio: "His father, whose speech I heard in the Iraq debate all these years ago, would be burling (spinning) in his grave hearing a speech in favour of a Tory prime minister wanting to take the country to war and that’s just a reality."
Hilary's niece Emily attacked the comments, tweeting that she found Mr Salmond's remarks "deeply offensive":
The shadow chancellor warned it could foster another generation of militants determined to commit a Paris-style terror attack.
The Defence Secretary has warned the RAF that the fight against Islamic State will not be short or simple.
Officers were posted outside the constituency office of Neil Coyle, the Labour MP for Bermondsey & Old Southwark.
