Britain has "no immediate" plan to send weapons to Syrian opposition fighters despite Monday's decision to lift an EU arms embargo, Foreign Secretary William Hague said.

"While we have no immediate plans to send arms to Syria it gives us the flexibility to respond in the future if the situation continues to deteriorate and worsen," Hague told reporters.
