How West Norfolk MP's Voted on Syria.

Britain's MP's have voted against supporting humanitarian and military intervention in Syria.

David Cameron reacted to say he accepted the result.

"It is very clear tonight that while the house has not passed the motion, it is clear to me that the British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British Military action. I get that, and the government will act accordingly."

Civil War

Syria has been effectively at Civil War for a few years now, with opposition forces battling for control and trying to oust President Assad.

There has been heavy bombing in the cities and both sides have inflicted heavy casualties on the other. Civilians though have been taking the brunt of the violence with millions fleeing to neighbouring countries.

100 thousand people are thought to have died.

Last week, a chemical weapon was used, and it's thought to have killed more than a thousand people, many of whom were women and children. UN Weapons Inspectors are due to confirm the type of poison gas that was used in the next few days.

This was the last straw for the international community and last night MPs were asked whether they agreed with the motion:

"[The UK] agrees that a strong humanitarian response is required from the international community and that this may, if necessary, require military action"

Conservative MP for South West Norfolk Elizabeth Truss voted FOR.

Conservative MP for Wisbech Steve Barklay voted FOR.

Lib Dem MP for North Norfolk Norman Lamb voted FOR.

Conservative MP for North West Norfolk Henry Bellingham is down as either absent or abstained.

Last night, it's reported that a fighter jet dropped a napalm like substance on a school in the country. Images of badly burned and dead children and teenagers are emerging this morning.
