The highest number of people displaced by conflict ever was recorded last year, according to a report issued by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

The Global Trends report says that close to 60 million people around the world were forced to flee their homes as a result of conflict in 2014.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, says that forced displacement is "getting out of control" in what he called a "world at war."

Adrian Edwards has been discussing the report with Mr Guterres.
