Syria crisis: Calls for second UK vote rejected

The government has rejected calls for Parliament to be allowed to vote again on possible military action against Syria - in response to an alleged chemical attack in which more than 1,400 people died.

That is despite renewed calls from several senior politicians.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has insisted he could not "foresee any circumstances" under which MPs could be asked to vote again.

A BBC poll of the public suggests nearly three-quarters of Britons believe MPs were right to reject UK military action in Syria.

The US has delayed strikes pending the approval of Congress next week.

Ben Wright reports.
