Obama retakes presidential oath


President Obama has taken the oath of office again at the White House, after one word was spoken out of sequence on Tuesday.

It was part of a busy first full day in office, in which Mr Obama issued orders on government ethics and a pay freeze for senior White House staff.

Andy Gallacher reports.
