David Cameron begins trade mission in South East Asia

David Cameron says business deals worth more than £750m ($1.2bn) will be made during his tour of South East Asia.

Mr Cameron is to be accompanied by 31 UK business leaders on the trade mission, which starts in Indonesia.

The UK prime minister says he wants to forge links with the area’s rapidly growing markets for British goods and services during his four-day trip.

He will also discuss the threat of the self-styled Islamic State group and climate change during his trip.
