David Cameron has vowed to work with the newly re-elected US president, Barack Obama, to find ways to end the bloodshed in Syria, after hearing "horrendous" stories of suffering from refugees at a camp in Jordan.

The prime minister said his resolve to force Bashar al-Assad from power had been strengthened by the visit to the border region, where tens of thousands of fleeing Syrians are living at the vast UN-run compound.

British humanitarian aid for the crisis would be increased by 14million pounds.

Diplomatic talks are also planned between the UK's special envoy to the Syrian opposition, John Wilkes, and rebel military chiefs in an effort to "help shape the opposition".
