Prof Ted Malloch is gloomy about the euro's future.

Professor Ted Malloch, tipped to be Donald Trump's ambassador to the EU, says the euro's days could be numbered. A collapse of the single currency is possible in the next 18 months, he believes.

He also tells the BBC's economics editor, Kamal Ahmed, that Britain could agree a "mutually beneficial" free trade deal with America in as little as 90 days.
