Eurozone crisis: Barroso's caution over rescue deal

European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso has warned that dealing with the eurozone crisis will not be a quick process.

Speaking after EU leaders agreed a deal to tackle the situation, Mr Barroso said the "work needed to finalise certain aspects of this package" would happen in the next few weeks.

He added: "This is also about growth. We need to have fiscal discipline but at the same time we need to show our citizens there is hope."
