Former PM warns on economic stability of eurozone

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has told the BBC he fears the euro will face a "high noon" moment of reckoning early in the new year.

"I sense that in the first few months of 2011 we [will] have a major crisis in the euro area," he told the BBC's business editor, Robert Peston.

He said the euro's problems were bigger than just its governments' debts.
