Syria: Public reaction to vote

As MPs vote to halt UK action over Syria, the BBC Breakfast's Jenny Hill gauges the reaction of people in Huddersfield

MPs have rejected possible UK military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government to deter the use of chemical weapons.

David Cameron said he would respect the defeat of a government motion by 285-272, ruling out joining US-led strikes.

Ed Miliband described the result as a vote for the British people.

BBC Breakfast's Jenny Hill went to Huddersfield to gauge some reaction to the vote.
