George Osborne seeking 'better deal' on £1.7bn EU bill

Chancellor George Osborne is arguing the UK's case for not paying the EU an extra £1.7bn in a meeting of EU finance ministers in Brussels.

Ahead of the talks, Mr Osborne said the sum being asked for was "unacceptable" and he would get a "better deal".

David Cameron has repeatedly said the UK will not hand over any money by the 1 December deadline.
