Men and women in Britain appear to hold very different views on whether the government should sanction RAF air strikes against Isis militants in the Middle East.

A survey by YouGov and the Sunday Times found that although support for military intervention is increasing, men are significantly more supportive of the measure than women.

The latest figures show that six in ten men support air strikes, while only 25 per cent disagree with their use.

On the other hand, just 31 per cent of women approve of strikes with 36 disapproving.
