Disgraced former Co-op Bank chairman Paul Flowers has spoken for the first time since his arrest over drugs allegations, saying: "I have sinned."

The Methodist minister, who stepped down from the bank last summer, told BBC Newsnight some of his "frailties" had been exposed in the public domain.

He was arrested last November after the Mail on Sunday published footage showing him allegedly buying drugs.

The 63-year-old spoke to Newsnight's Jeremy Paxman.
