A group of MPs visited Israel to learn more about security issues and British-Israeli trade links as part of a trip organised by Conservative Friends of Israel.

The six Conservative Party politicians, including government whip Chloe Smith, Cannock Chase MP Aidan Burley and South Derbyshire MP Heather Wheeler, travelled around the country including to the southern town of Sderot.

While in Sderot, just 840 metres from the Gaza border, the group spent time with teenage students to hear about their daily life.

They also visited the Erez crossing and met representatives of Israel's high-tech industry.
