    The governor of the US state of New Jersey is embroiled in a scandal that some are dubbing "Beachgate".

    Chris Christie is a former presidential candidate and adviser to Donald Trump.

    He's been caught on camera with members of his family, lounging on a beach that had been closed by his own local government in a budget row.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New Jersey.
