Foreign Secretary William Hague: UK not in firing line

The Foreign Secretary, William Hague, has said the British government is monitoring the international financial situation extremely closely and is in touch with European and American counterparts.

Mr Hague is in charge of the UK while the Prime Minister is on holiday.

He said no country was immune from these problems, but insisted Britain was not in the "firing line" because it had acted to cut spending.
