The actor Johnny Depp has apologised for joking about assassinating US President Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

The Hollywood star made the comments while speaking at a drive-in cinema at Worthy Farm on Thursday night.

In a statement issued to People magazine, Depp said: "I apologise for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump. It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone."
