Google to make 'significant' changes to avoid EU fine

6 February 2014 Last updated at 17:25 GMT

Google has promised to make "significant" changes to how rivals appear in search results in an attempt to avoid a multi-billion euro fine.

The latest changes should be sufficient to end a three-year investigation into the search company, the EU's competition commissioner said.

Google had been accused of giving favourable treatment to its own products in search results.

The company said it looked forward to resolving the matter.
