Military attempts to clear Islamic State fighters out of final enclave of Baghouz in eastern Syria have stepped up again this evening, with footage emerging of clashes by United States-backed forces taking place.

It comes as The Sunday Times reported that two more British women have had their citizenship stripped after travelling to Syria and marrying Islamic State jihadis.

The Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has insisted that the Government is working on how to rescue the children of these women.
