German elections: Top MEP 'concerned' as populists rise in polls

We meet the German MEP who heads the biggest group in the European Parliament. Manfred Weber is chair of the centre-right European People's Party and is also a top member of the CSU, the Bavarian sister party of Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU. He speaks to us about the upcoming German elections on September 24, the diplomatic rift between Turkey and Germany, and the migrant crisis.
