Donald Trump's wife has begun legal action in London after claiming that she was defamed by the British-based 'Daily Mail' newspaper.

Melania Trump had filed a lawsuit against the Mail in the USA a few weeks ago - complaining that false statements had been published about her. Now she has also lodged a claim in England.

Ms Trump had filed her American claim at a court in Maryland - naming the 'Daily Mail' and a blogger based in Maryland as defendants.

Papers filed in Maryland indicated she was claiming at least $75,000 (€67,000) from each defendant and said the 'Daily Mail Online' had published an article referring to her "very racy past''.

The 'Daily Mail' had published a retraction - and editors said they regretted any misinterpretation.
