Prime Minister David Cameron arrived back at Downing Street on Tuesday (August 27) having cut short his summer holiday to discuss possible action against Syria following a suspected chemical weapons attack in the country.

Cameron was joined at Downing Street by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Foreign Secretary William Hague.

A spokesman later announced that Cameron is recalling members of Britain's lower house of parliament from their summer break to discuss Syria on Thursday (August 29).

Cameron tweeted: "Speaker agrees my request to recall Parliament on Thurs. There'll be a clear Govt motion & vote on UK response to chemical weapons attacks."

Hundreds of people died in Damascus suburbs last week (Wednesday, August 21) in what appears to have been a chemical weapons attack.
