Prince Andrew sex claims 'emphatically denied' by palace

Buckingham Palace has "emphatically denied" Prince Andrew had sexual contact with a woman who claims she was forced to have sex with him under age.

The Duke of York was named in US court papers relating to the handling of a case against financier Jeffrey Epstein.

In the palace's second statement on the claims, it said those made about the duke were "without any foundation".

The BBC's Peter Hunt said it was unusual for the palace to release two statements about the allegations.
