The UK has pledged an extra £100m to tackle the plight of millions of Syrians affected by civil war.

International Development Secretary Justine Greening made the commitment to the UN's latest crisis appeal at an international "pledging conference for Syria" in Kuwait.

She said the scale of suffering caused was "hard to exaggerate".

The government said the £600m now pledged was "three times its response to any other humanitarian crisis".
