Toronto mayor confirms 'stupid mistakes'

4 November 2013 Last updated at 16:03 GMT

The mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, has used his weekly radio show to apologise for "mistakes" and drunken behaviour, but said he would not leave office.

He said his actions were "pure stupidity" and he would try to curb his drinking.

Mr Ford is under pressure after Canadian police revealed they had recovered a video appearing to show him smoking from a crack cocaine pipe.

He denies smoking crack, and has called for the video to be released for Canadian people to "judge for themselves".
