Merkel and Cameron in battle over European Commission

The leaders of Sweden, Germany, Britain and the Netherlands are meeting at a mini-EU summit near Stockholm to try to reach a consensus on European reform.

The controversial question of who is to head the European Commission is likely to be discussed, with David Cameron expected to attempt to block Jean-Claude Juncker from getting the job.

It sets him against German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who publicly supports the ex-Luxembourg leader's appointment.

Ben Wright reports.
