Gove: Labour vote on Syria 'rests on their conscience'

Michael Gove has issued some of the strongest criticism of Labour after the failed vote over military action in Syria.

The Education Secretary said: "Ed Miliband made a cynical calculation to put his political interests ahead of national security and humanitarian intervention.

"He and his party are going to have to live with it...the consequences rest with the Labour party and those who voted for them it rests on their conscience."
