Recall Parliament over Syria, says Newport MP Paul Flynn

Newport West MP Paul Flynn said "cool heads" are needed when deciding whether or not to take military action against Syria.

A decision is expected later on whether or not Parliament will be recalled to discuss the crisis in Syria.

MPs from all parties have been demanding they be consulted before any move to support military action is taken.

Mr Flynn said it was a "terribly dangerous situation" which could end up engulfing the whole region and beyond.

Here, he talks to Peter Johnson on BBC Radio Wales.
