SNP MPs have taken to Twitter to voice their opposition to bombing IS in Syria after 57 of Scotland's 59 MP voted against the air strikes.

The first UK air strikes in Syria were carried out hours after MPs voted in favour of the UK extending its air strikes in Syria.

MPs voted by 397 to 223 last night in favour of extending British action to quash IS, also known as Isis, Isil and Daesh, from Iraq into its Syrian strongholds - a majority of 174.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Angus Robertson, leader of the SNP at Westminster, had confirmed ahead of the vote that the party's MPs would oppose David Cameron's air strike plans.

The SNP's MPs have now voiced their disappointment at the outcome of the vote on Twitter.
