Hungarians go to the polls today in a referendum that puts further pressure on the European Union after the Brexit vote.

The question on the ballot is: "Do you want the European Union to be entitled to proscribe the mandatory settlement of non-Hungarian citizens in Hungary without the consent of the National Assembly (Parliament)?"

Donald Trump declared a $916m (€815m) loss on his 1995 income tax returns, which may have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years, according to a report.

The New York Times said it had obtained the Republican presidential nominee's 1995 tax records and that they showed he received the large tax benefits from financial deals that went wrong in the early 1990s.

Tax experts hired by the newspaper to analyse the records said tax rules which are advantageous to wealthy filers would have let Mr Trump use his loss to cancel out an equivalent amount of taxable income over an 18-year period.
