Riot police in Turkey have fired water cannon and tear gas at hundreds of protesters calling on Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to quit.

There has been uproar since a recording emerged which it is alleged features the prime minister and his son discussing how to hide large sums of cash.

Mr Erdogan insists the recording is a fake and has promised to punish those responsible.

James Reynolds reports from Ankara.
