RAF Tornado jets have carried out their first air strikes against so-called Islamic (ISIL) State in Syria, foreign media reports.

The strikes came hours after MPs voted in favour of UK air strikes in Syria.

They backed the action by 397 votes to 223 after a 10-hour debate in the House of Commons.

Four Tornado jets took off from RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, shortly after the vote.
