Greece crisis: MPs set to vote on austerity package

Greek politicians are to vote on Wednesday on austerity measures that have sparked nationwide strikes and the worst rioting in Athens for more than year.

PM George Papandreou has said that only his 28bn-euro (£25bn) austerity plan will get Greece back on its feet.

If the package is not approved, Greece could run out of money within weeks.

Matt Cole reports.
