Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in prison in Los Angeles and four years of probation for drink-driving.

Following his arrest in October 2012, the 44-year-old pleaded no contest to charges he was under the influence and driving on a suspended licence.

He was on probation after another drink-driving incident at the time.

The New Edition singer and ex-husband of Whitney Houston will be required to undertake an 18-month alcohol treatment programme.
