Britain on Saturday expressed "serious" doubt over the credibility of Zimbabwe's election results, after President Robert Mugabe won a landslide victory among complaints by the opposition of widespread fraud.

"The irregularities in the lead up to the elections and on election day itself, reported by the observer missions and in contravention of SADC's (the Southern African Development Community's) guidelines, call into serious question the credibility of the election," Foreign Secretary William Hague said in a statement.
