Copenhagen deal 'not come together' says Miliband

World leaders and ministers arrive in Copenhagen this week but a deal at the climate talks still seems far off.

Negotiators who have been battling it out for a week at the Danish capital have not agreed a deal so far and it now falls to the ministers to push the talks forward in their second and final week.

Developing countries have also, over the weekend, threatened to walk away from the talks if the developed world does not agree larger emissions cuts and more funding to help them reduce theirs.

British energy and climate change secretary Ed Miliband speaking this morning (December 14) said: "We've a long way to go.

"It's like a jigsaw puzzle and the pieces have not come together, now we're getting close to midnight and the pieces need to come together."
