It's been claimed that a new EU Mortgage Credit Directive is creating serious difficulties for cross border workers here.

Northern Ireland MEP Martina Anderson says some cross border workers are actually being refused Mortgages due to aspects of the directive, which has introduced new rules regarding foreign currency loans.
