David Cameron has given his strongest indication yet that the G8 meeting in Russia will be abandoned in a continuing stand-off over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine.
The Prime Minister said it was "hard to see" how the gathering of the powerful group of nations could go ahead in Sochi in June, and insisted "nothing should be off the table" in terms of sanctions.
The comments came after Foreign Secretary William Hague warned he was "not optimistic" of making progress in talks with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Paris later.
