PM criticises new EU building plans

The prime minister has strongly criticised the construction of a building in Brussels that will be the new home for European Union summits.

The new building, called "Europa", is next to the current one and is due to be completed in 2014.

British officials estimate the UK taxpayers' bill for the project will be about £25m.

At an EU summit in Brussels, David Cameron said it was "immensely frustrating" at a time of cuts.
