Turkey's prime minister has accused his enemies in the police of trying to bring him and his AKP government down.

It follows the emergence of a recording in which Recep Tayyip Erdogan is supposedly heard telling his son in a telephone call to dispose of millions of euros in cash.

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