The FBI plans to investigate an email leak at the Democratic National Committee - which showed officials actively favoured Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the presidential primary.

A cache of emails leaked by the Wikileaks website disclosed that DNC officials explored ways to undermine Mr Sanders' presidential campaign.

DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has since resigned.

The leaked emails angered Mr Sanders' supporters, hundreds of whom took to the streets of Philadelphia on Sunday to voice their discontent.

In a statement, the FBI said: "A compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously, and the FBI will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace".
