The head of the UN's leading panel on climate change says he won't resign, despite false claims about the deterioration of the Himalayan glaciers.

Rajendra Pachauri told the BBC that the mistake in a report 3 years ago was 'human error' and insisted that it didn't change the fact that the world's glaciers were indeed melting.

The BBC's Environment Correspondent David Shukman reports.
