    Senior management at the charity Oxfam have been answering questions from British MPs in London.

    This follows allegations that its staff paid women in Haiti for sex in the wake of the 2010 earthquake.

    Oxfam's chief executive, Mark Goldring, has said the charity is now investigating a further 26 cases of alleged sexual abuse from around the world.
