UK will help vulnerable Syrians - Hague

The Foreign Secretary William Hague told Andrew Marr there is a case for the UK helping Syrian refugees which are "particularly vulnerable to violence".

Hague said that the Prime Minister and the Home Secretary Theresa May were working on the details of a scheme which would allow Syrian refugees to come to the UK but would not be drawn on which groups of people would be deemed most in need of help.

Speaking as talks between the regime and opposition groups continued in Geneva, he added the most important thing the UK could do to help Syrians was to continue to provide aid on the ground.
