Lancaster MP Cat Smith has outlined her opposition to British air strikes in Syria in a series of tweets.

She voted with the majority of Labour MPs against the motion to begin air strikes in Parliament last night.

"I voted against government motion to bomb," she said. "It won't make for a secure Syria and too many questions left unanswered by Cameron on [his] plan.

"When I voted against [the] government plan on #SyriaVote tonight I did so with a huge majority of Labour MPs and majority of shadow cabinet.

"I do not believe air strikes will make for a secure Syria or make us safer here which is why I voted against the government."

• Morecambe and Lunesdale MP David Morris followed the party whip and backed air strikes. You can read his full statement here
