Joe Biden signs bill to narrowly avert US government shutdown

US President Joe Biden has narrowly avoided a government shutdown, signing new legislation on spending just hours before the deadline.

Republicans blocked the bill to fund the American government through to 3 December because they were unhappy with the plan to raise the debt ceiling, but it was eventually passed by the House and the Senate.
