European finance ministers are meeting in Brussels to finalise the details of a bail-out worth more than 85bn euros ($113bn; 72bn) for the Irish Republic.

Eurozone ministers were also joined by those from outside, including UK Chancellor George Osborne.

French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde said a deal was "nearly done".

But the BBC's business editor Robert Peston said ministers were still struggling to reach agreement on the interest rate to be paid by the Irish.
