Australia's health minister has temporarily stood aside after using a taxpayer-funded trip to purchase an apartment worth A$795,000 (£473,300; $585,200) on Queensland's Gold Coast.

Sussan Ley said she made an "error of judgement" in billing taxpayers for three Gold Coast visits since 2014.

PM Malcolm Turnbull said Ms Ley agreed to step aside without ministerial pay pending an investigation.

Entitlements scandals have engulfed Australian politics in recent years.
