The head of a British climate research institute has stepped aside after leaked emails were said to suggest that the case for global warming had been exaggerated.

Professor Phil Jones, director of the Norwich-based University of East Anglia's (UEA) Climatic Research Unit (CRU), has said he stands by his data.

Sceptics claim the e-mails, leaked after a UEA server was hacked into, showed data was being manipulated. David Shukman reports.
