Europe has 'enormous debt mountain'

On Thursday global stock markets fell sharply as investors continued to worry about the eurozone debt crisis and the US economy.

Louise Cooper from BGC Partners says the EU is facing "a mountain of debt" and the Germans are tired of "writing cheques" for the rest of the continent.
