Hughes: UK must 'continue to be engaged in the UN'

Britain must remain engaged with the United Nations when any further action is taken towards Syria, the Lib Dem deputy leader Simon Hughes has told Daybreak.

Mr Hughes, who voted for military action in last night's vote, urged the UK to also engage with Syria's ally, Russia "however difficult" that may be.
