The UN Security Council has unanimously approved a resolution on access to humanitarian aid in Syria - the first time it has united on the issue.

The resolution says both Syrian government and opposition forces must allow aid convoys to reach civilians across the country.

The agreed text does not threaten sanctions - but warns of "further steps" if the sides do not comply.

Russia and China, who vetoed previous similar resolutions, voted in favour.
