The President of the European Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen has held interviews with the two candidates to replace Phil Hogan as EU Commissioner.

Midlands-Northwest MEP Mairead McGuinness and Andrew McDowell both had video calls with the President this morning.

One of the two candidates will be selected in the coming days to be Ireland's EU Commissioner.

The trade portfolio is likely to be given to another country with a more senior commissioner after Phil Hogan's resignation over the golfgate controversy.
