The former Swiss president has said the UK should work with her country to find a way to balance freedom of movement with single market access.

Micheline Calmy-Rey said the two countries shared a common purpose out - or planning to be out - of the European Union.

But both still want a good trade relationship with the union.

She also urged the European Union to become more "flexible" on the issue of immigration or risk "exploding".
