UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has said it is time the UN "shouldered its responsibilities" regarding Syria.

Mr Hague said a UN resolution would be "by far the best thing", adding that the UK has put forward a draft resolution to the UN Security Council "to do what is necessary".

He said that if the UN could not reach agreement, individual nations still had a responsibility to act.
