Boris Johnson: 'Don't think anyone could contest a word'

The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has described those who join extremist groups such as Islamic State as men with low self-esteem who are likely to be users of pornography.

He told a newspaper those turning to extremism were unsuccessful with women and described them as losers, among other more colourful terms.

BBC News asked him whether he regretted the language he used.
