Reaction as Juncker nominated as next EC president

Reaction as EU leaders meeting in Brussels confirm their nomination for former Luxembourg PM Jean-Claude Juncker as the next president of the European Commission.

The move comes despite strong opposition from Britain. Hungary also voted against the proposal.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron believes Mr Juncker is too much in favour of closer political union and might block EU reform.
