Myanmar's first ever international beauty queen has refused to hand back her crown until the pageant's organisers apologise to her country.

May Myat No held a press conference on Tuesday to defend herself against accusations she had run off with the $100,000 (£60,300) crown.

Ms May told reporters she was forced to lie about her age and organisers had demanded that she have extensive plastic surgery.
