Peter Allen and Anna Foster with the day's news and sport. The prospect of a military strike on Syria grows nearer as David Cameron calls MPs back to Westminster. We talk to an MP who'll be backing intervention, and to an activist in Damascus, who met with UN weapons inspectors yesterday. A report criticises council workers and inspectors after a serious sexual assault at a nursery in Birmingham. And the latest on the Gareth Bale saga.
