European leaders have finally reached an agreement on the bloc's next long-term budget and a Covid-19 recovery fund.

The frugals also managed to get an emergency brake instrument into the deal – it means that if other member states think one country isn't spending its aid money wisely, they can hit pause on payments while they review how the money is being used.
