The lawyer of Oscar Pistorius, the South African athlete accused of murdering his girlfriend, has denied claims the couple were unhappy.

Barry Roux emphasised that among hundreds of "loving" text messages, only four showed signs of arguments.

Mr Pistorius denies deliberately shooting Reeva Steenkamp last February, saying he thought she was an intruder.

Andrew Harding reports from Pretoria.
