Dominic Raab has been questioned by MPs on the UK's withdrawal from Afghanistan, during an appearance at the Foreign Affairs Select Committee. We chat with the head of the committee Tom Tugendhat, the Conservative MP, who served in Afghanistan. Our Chief International Correspondent, Lyse Doucet, joins us from Kabul to share what she’s been hearing from Afghans about their dreams and fears for the future. And remember Piers Morgan? Ofcom has cleared ITV over the now ex-Good Morning Britain host’s comments about Meghan Markle. Stewart Purvis, former Ofcom board member and former chief executive of ITN, helps us understand the media regulator’s thinking. Today’s Newscast was made by Rick Kelsey with producers Danny Wittenberg, Alix Pickles and Ben Cooper. The studio manager was Emma Crowe.
