Scottish Lib Dem conference: Nick Clegg makes badgers gaffe in speech

28 March 2014 Last updated at 17:46 GMT

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg had Scottish party conference delegates laughing when he mispronounced the word budget while trying to make a serious point about coalition negotiations.

He told the audience gathered in Aberdeen: "When me and Danny [Alexander] go into the quad to hammer out the badget, budget, oh badget. Sorry, not badger, budget."

Delegates began to laugh and an embarrassed Mr Clegg continued: "Badgers can rest peacefully tonight."
