Greece court orders state broadcaster ERT back on air

A Greek court has ordered that state broadcaster ERT, which was shut down by the government last week, can resume transmissions.

However, the court also upheld a plan by Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to replace ERT with a smaller broadcaster.

The ruling came as Mr Samaras and his coalition partners - furious that they had not been consulted about ERT's closure - held crisis talks.

Mark Lowen reports.
