Italy's Beppe Grillo calls for referendum on leaving euro

Beppe Grillo, the leader of the Italian Five Star Movement, has visited the European Parliament to present his programme to get a referendum in Italy on leaving the euro "as soon as possible".

The comedian turned politician is aiming to collect four million signatures in Italy by next spring. He will then go to parliament in Rome, where many of his MPs now sit, and demand a referendum.
