Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has said he is "receiving support" and apologised for using "unforgivable language" following claims relating to "cocaine, escorts, prostitution".

"These allegations are 100% lies. When you attack my integrity as a father and as a husband I see red," he added.

Mr Ford, 44, recently admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in office - and a video later emerged which showed him threatening to kill someone.
