Jurors in the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor have for the first time heard audio of Dr Conrad Murray being questioned by police two days after the pop star's death.

In the recording, Dr Murray describes how he gave Jackson the anaesthetic propofol after singer's insomnia did not respond to other drugs.

Dr Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter. He denies the charge.

Peter Bowes reports.
