TV cook Nigella Lawson has admitted taking cocaine, but denies having a drug problem or being an addict.

The TV chef was giving evidence at the fraud trial of her two former assistants.

She said she had taken the drug twice, first with her late husband John Diamond when he was terminally ill.

The BBC's Luisa Baldini was inside court.
