Hague interview in full: UK wanted 'unimpeded, immediate access'

Diplomatic pressure on Syria has failed and the UK is considering its response to a suspected chemical attack, Foreign Secretary William Hague says.

Mr Hague told BBC Radio 4 Today's programme that while he could not go into options or the timetable for any action, he was not "going to rule anything in or out".

When asked about requests for the recall of Parliament, he said the UK had a "good record" of consulting MPs if the decision was to take military action.
