Two of Europe's best-known euro-sceptic politicians have been meeting in the Netherlands to discuss forging closer ties.

Geert Wilders, who leads the Dutch Freedom Party and Marine Le Pen, head of the French National Front, have launched what they called an "historic alliance" for the European Parliament elections in 2014.

Mr Wilders said they have agreed on the need to repatriate from Brussels the power to control their countries' borders and economies.

Anna Holligan reports.
