Chaotic scenes at Kabul airport have underpinned a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan by NATO forces, bringing to question Britain's duty to desperate Afghans.

An anonymous Afghan civil rights activist told Tom Swarbrick that the Taliban are going from house to house searching for people opposed to the regime and are assassinating them.

Following comments from the Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Nick Carter this week urging the West to give the Taliban time to prove themselves, Sir Iain Duncan Smith tells LBC the general's statement was 'peculiar' and naive.

Climate activist group Extinction Rebellion are set to embark on a fortnight of action this week to urge Government to divest from petrochemicals to avoid climate catastrophe. XR co-founder Clare Farrell joined Tom to explain the group's action.
