Greece election: Syriza supporter 'didn't see a future'

Supporters of Greece's far-left Syriza party have hailed the party following its victory in Greece's general election.

Nineteen-year-old "Chrysi", who is training to be a nurse, said the party had always stood alongside those who protested against the former government's austerity measures.

She said it had felt like there was no future in Greece but the Syriza's victory gave a possibility to change this.

The party's leader Alexis Tsipras has been sworn in as prime minister and is set to lead an anti-austerity coalition government.
