Prince Andrew 'was home with the children'

The Duke of York has disputed the account of an American woman who says that she was forced to have sex with him aged 17.

Virginia Giuffre - then called Virginia Roberts - says that she met Prince Andrew in a nightclub in 2001. But the prince says that he took his daughter to Pizza Express in Woking that day before spending the night at home.

In an interview with BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis, he also denied allegations made against him where he was described as sweating profusely, saying that he had a medical condition that meant he didn't sweat at the time.
