UK to act with 'urgency' over
Syrian refugees, says PM

The UK will act "with the greatest urgency" in offering the "most needy people" in Syrian refugee camps a "home in our country", says David Cameron.

 

The prime minister told MPs he wanted to "particularly help those who have been victims of sexual violence."

 

Deputy PM Nick Clegg said on Tuesday torture victims, elderly and disabled people would also get priority.

 

The government expects the number of refugees accepted to be in the hundreds but has not set a specific target.
