Greek euro exit explained - with kebab

Neither the Greek government nor its eurozone partners want to see Greece leaving the eurozone - or a "Grexit" as it has become known. But if they cannot agree a way forward, it could mean Greece abandoning the euro.

Much has been written about the dangers of Greece leaving the eurozone.

You can read some of our coverage as we explain what would happen if Greece quit the euro, the existential threat to the euro and what will happen if there's no deal?

But for a stripped down look at the way in which the Greeks might have to improvise a move to a new currency, Dougal Shaw decided to go back to basics.

In the search for a helpful image, he decided to use a kebab - commonly referred to in Greece as "gyros" - to explain the practicalities of a country having to leave the single European currency.
