Syria: Public reaction to vote against intervention

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.
