PM Tsipras defiant as bank controls bite

Before his speech he put new proposals to eurozone partners, accepting most of what was on the table before talks collapsed, but with conditions.
But eurozone finance ministers later said there were "no grounds for further talks at this point". Greece is going ahead with a controversial 5 July referendum on its bailout conditions, despite much criticism of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's decision to hold it.
