DAVID Cameron will put pressure on European leaders to do more to fight the spread of the deadly Ebola virus at a meeting of EU member states in Brussels today.

The Prime Minister is said to be frustrated that member states had not pledged more cash to fight the spread of the disease, which originated in west Africa.

He wants to persuade EU leaders to back a €1bn fund and send 2,000 medical personnel to help on the ground – 1,000 of whom would be in place by mid-December.
