High Pay Commission concerned over RBS chief's bonus

Unions have called the £963,000 share bonus for RBS boss Stephen Hester "disgusting and offensive" and are calling for him to turn it down just like he did when he first joined the bank in 2009.

The High Pay Commission chairwoman told Radio 5 live that the government should be following through on their commitment of tackling executive high pay.

Deborah Hargreaves expressed her concerns to Breakfast's Nicky Campbell and Andy Verity.
