Hundreds of peace campaigners attended a rally at Downing Street on Friday evening as MP Emma Dent Coad handed in a letter urging Theresa May not to take military action in Syria. Chemical weapons inspectors had just arrived in Syria and were about to begin their inveistigations - but a few hours later more than 100 air attacks were carried out by British, US and French forces on alleged chemical weapon sites in Syria.
