Prime Minister David Cameron has said the UK and it's allies may need to take "further steps" against Bashar Assad's regime if it is proved that chemical weapons have continued to be used in the Syrian civil war.

The Prime Minister told MPs that reports that chlorine had been used in recent months were "extremely disturbing" and if they were shown to be true then the UK would decide on "appropriate action".

Mr Cameron also warned that Britons being radicalised while taking part in the Syrian conflict could be the greatest terrorist threat facing the country.
