We interfere too much, admits European Union

EU Commission president tells MEPs the union has "lost attractiveness"

The European Union's most senior official has admitted it interferes too much in people's lives.

The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, thinks the 28-nation group has lost "parts of its attractiveness" to ordinary citizens.

His comments came in response to questions from British MEPs in Strasbourg, amid fears that Britain may vote to leave the European Union in a referendum to be held in June.
