British Warship To Assist With Disposing of Syria's Chemical Weapons

British warship HMS Montrose is to join a convoy transporting the first consignment of chemical weapons from Syria, William Hague has said.

He confirmed that the UK would also assist US efforts to "neutralise" the most dangerous material.

But he warned that securing an end to the conflict was still "challenging".
