US music producer Quincy Jones is suing the estate of the late Michael Jackson, claiming he is owed millions in royalties and production fees.

Jones produced some of the singer's best-selling albums, including Thriller.

He says the singer's estate and Sony Music Entertainment improperly re-edited songs to deprive him of royalties and production fees.

Mr Jones says they also broke an agreement giving him the right to remix master recordings for albums released after Jackson's death in 2009.

Peter Bowes reports from Los Angeles.
