BBC Wales Political Editor Betsan Powys on NHS report row 'damage'

A report calling for controversial changes to NHS hospitals has been branded a "dodgy dossier" after emails between its academic author and senior Welsh government officials emerged.

The Conservatives called for Health Minister Lesley Griffiths to resign if she knew about the emails.

Health economist Professor Marcus Longley asked civil servants for "killer facts" to support reforms.

Prof Longley and the Welsh government insisted the report was independent.

BBC Wales political editor tells Radio Wales' Oliver Hides how damaging she believes the issue is for the Welsh government.
