Miss World 2013 'not just running on in a bikini'

Contestants vying to take the 2013 Miss World crown won't be wearing bikinis.

The pageant's being held in Indonesia in September and the decision to cover up has been made to avoid causing offence in the world's most populated Islamic country.

Julia Morley, who is the Chair of the Miss World Organisation, told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast that the competition is "not just running on the stage in a bikini", and Angie Beasley, Director of Miss England, thinks it is "a step forward".
