Charlotte Church has said she is "really sorry" for the behaviour of some anti-austerity protesters after journalists were spat at as they attended the Conservative Party conference in Britain.

The singer condemned activists for abusing people in Manchester and is writing an open letter of apology.

MPs, journalists and staff at the conference centre were called "scum" as they ran the gauntlet of demonstrators on the opening day of the event.

Church told reporters: "I would never have called anybody scum. I think that it is fundamentally unhelpful in the issues we're trying to talk about."
