'Theresa May has called an urgent cabinet meeting to approve Britain’s response to the escalating crisis in Syria, amid concern the UK will launch military action without consulting Parliament.
Downing Street said Ms May and her top ministers would sit down, with the situation in the war-torn country the only item on their agenda.
The meeting comes as the prime minister toughened her language on the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, effectively blaming the Syrian regime and demanding it be held to account.
But with Donald Trump promising that missiles would soon be fired at Syrian targets, MPs including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn demanded a Commons vote before the UK deploys forces.
The heightened tensions came on another day of drama on the international stage, which saw the US and Russia squaring up over the on-going bloody Syrian civil war and Moscow’s support for Bashar al-Assad.
Downing Street sources said the cabinet meeting – unusual during a parliamentary break – represented the “next phase” of Ms May’s approach to the crisis, following her conversations with Mr Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and national security officials.'
