Toronto mayor Rob Ford 'receiving help'

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has said he is "receiving support" and apologised for using "unforgivable language" following claims relating to "cocaine, escorts, prostitution".

"These allegations are 100% lies. When you attack my integrity as a father and as a husband I see red," he added.

Mr Ford, 44, recently admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in office - and a video later emerged which showed him threatening to kill someone.
