Freud: Pressure continues over disability pay comments

Pressure continues on Conservative Welfare minister Lord Freud who said some disabled people were "not worth" the minimum wage.

Labour's Angela Eagle said the words would "haunt this government until Lord Freud resigns" and suggested the prime minister was "too weak to act".

Nick Clegg said it was offensive but did not call for his resignation. Mr Freud has apologised for "foolish and offensive" remarks.

The BBC's Iain Watson reports.
