Brown denies South Africa trip is pitch for IMF job

Help

Gordon Brown has told the BBC he is not in South Africa to "pitch for a job" at the International Monetary Fund.

Speculation about who will be the next IMF chief is mounting following the resignation of Dominique Strauss-Kahn after he was arrested in New York.

But Mr Brown did not answer questions about whether he would go for the job and told journalists he would "say no more about that".

Mr Strauss-Kahn denies the sexual offences charges against him.
