David Cameron has described Nigeria and Afghanistan as "fantastically corrupt" in a conversation with the Queen.

The PM was talking about this week's anti-corruption summit in London.

"We've got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain... Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world," he was overheard saying.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, elected last year after vowing to fight corruption, said he was "shocked".

And a senior Afghan official said the characterisation was "unfair".
