Berlusconi suffers election setback in Milan and Naples

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right coalition has lost control of Milan and Naples in local elections.

The run-off polls are seen as a key test of Mr Berlusconi's popularity, as he faces multiple corruption trials and sex scandals.

Some six million voters were eligible to cast their ballots in 90 towns and six provinces, but the results in Milan and Naples are seen as most important.

David Willey reports from Rome.
