US President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett, a favourite of social conservatives, to be the new Supreme Court justice.

Speaking by her side at the White House Rose Garden, Trump described her as a "woman of unparalleled achievement".

If confirmed by senators, Judge Barrett will replace liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died recently, aged 87.

The nomination will spark a bitter confirmation fight in the Senate as November's presidential election looms.
