But British involvement in further military intervention is controversial at home, in a country still haunted by its role in the US-led invasion of Iraq.

"The position is a very risky one because of Russian involvement, also because we have an erratic president of the United States".
Following the meeting, May spoke to Donald Trump and the pair agreed that the United Kingdom and the USA would "keep working closely together on the worldwide response", according to a statement from Downing Street.
Some MPs have backed Britain acting against Syria, warning that the use of chemical weapons was in breach of worldwide law and could not be allowed to go unpunished.
