Recriminations after Copenhagen summit

The UK's climate change secretary has said the UN Copenhagen summit was the "most chaotic show on earth" and arguments "strangled" negotiations.

Ed Miliband said he was disappointed China and India did not want legally binding targets, and Sudan and Venezuela almost overturned the accord.

Delegates largely backed a US-led climate deal which included limiting temperature rises to less than 2C.

But the 193-nation summit ended with delegates taking "note" of the deal. David Loyn reports.
