BREAKING: Finnish President confirms NATO bid

Finnish President Sauli Niinisto confirms that Finland will apply for NATO membership to "maximise" the countrys security, despite Vladimir Putins warning that it would be a "mistake" to do so.

Mr Niinisto said: "This is a historic day. A new era begins."

The country is expected to submit a formal application to NATO headquarters in Brussels next week.
