US Congressman Weiner admits 'inappropriate' Twitter photo

7 June 2011 Last updated at 01:45 BST

Married New York congressman Anthony Weiner has admitted sending a close-up picture of his underpants to a young woman, but says he will not resign.

The Democratic representative also acknowledged "inappropriate" communications with women online.

Mr Weiner had initially said his Twitter account had been hacked when a photo of a man's crotch was sent from it last week, as Tom Burridge reports.
