Beauty queen refuses to back down in crown row

Her brief reign might be over, but Myanmar's first ever beauty queen has refused to give back her $100,000 (£60,300) crown after being dethroned.

May Myat Noe was only crowned Miss Asia Pacific three months ago, but she was stripped of her title last week after being labelled a liar and a thief by pageant organisers.
