British chancellor: We've got six weeks to save Europe

He said the situation must be brought under control by November’s G20 summit in Cannes, France.

Speaking in Washington, US, he declared: “Time is running out. The eurozone has six weeks to resolve this political crisis.”

He added the current £350billion European bailout fund may not be enough to fix it.

Greece’s finance minister reportedly admitted a default was a possibility.
