Britain, France and Germany this afternoon warned Vladimir Putin to grant international investigators immediate access to the MH17 crash site in Ukraine – or face fresh sanctions on Tuesday.

David Cameron, Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande said they were ‘prepared’ to increase economic attacks on Russia if it did not deliver. The three EU leaders spoke over the phone this morning.

It came after the Prime Minister attacked European leaders for being too soft on Mr Putin.

He accused the EU showing a lack of ‘resolve’ in refusing to face up to Russia and suggested the world was now paying the price. Mr Cameron also likened the crisis to Europe’s appeasement of Hitler in the 1930s.
