Watch live: Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address
The president is addressing the US Congress for the last time before the autumn election.

US PRESIDENT BARACK Obama is delivering his State of the Union address to members of the Senate and the House of Representatives in Washington tonight.

The annual address to the nation is required under the US constitution and is normally a platform for the president of the day to outline his legislative agenda. It is likely to be a politically charged speech with the election less than ten months away.

Obama is expected to discuss jobs and ways to boost the country’s high unemployment rate as well as housing and tax policies.

You can watch the address live from 2am GMT courtesy of the White House feed:
