Caitlyn Jenner has attacked US president Donald Trump over his administration's reversal of guidelines on transgender access to public school toilets.

The former Olympic gold-medal winning decathlete, then known as Bruce Jenner, who came out as a transgender woman in 2015, addressed Mr Trump in a video posted on Twitter, saying: "From one Republican to another, this is a disaster."

The Trump White House has ended a directive issued during Barack Obama's presidency that told state schools to let transgender pupils use toilets and locker rooms of their chosen gender.

Jenner is particularly critical of attorney general Jeff Sessions, saying: "Apparently even becoming attorney general isn't enough to cure some people of their insecurities."

Addressing Mr Trump, she says: "You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me."
