Embattled foreign secretary Dominic Raab has told MPs he never considered quitting over the Afghanistan crisis, even as his role in the UK withdrawal came under intense scrutiny.

Raab cut a defiant figure in front of the foreign affairs select committee, which took the unusual step of bringing the Cabinet Office minister into parliament during recess to account for his actions.
