Last-minute deal saves fractious UN climate talks in Poland

UN climate talks in Poland have ended with delegates reaching a compromise on how to fight global warming.

After 30 hours of deadlock, they approved a pathway to a new global climate treaty in Paris in 2015.

The agreement was achieved after a series of last-minute compromises often involving single words in draft texts.
