New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has admitted sending explicit messages to a woman, two years after he left Congress over a similar affair.

In 2011, he said his Twitter account was hacked, but then admitted sending lewd photos to young women.

Mr Weiner, who has been leading polls of Democratic mayoral candidates, said he was "very sorry".
