Lansley sorry as nurses pass 'no confidence' vote

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has said he is "sorry" for failing to communicate his plans for the NHS in England.

He was speaking to an audience of 65 nurses at the Royal College of Nursing conference.

Earlier some 96% of 497 delegates in Liverpool took the unprecedented decision to give him a vote of no confidence.

It comes on the day Labour called on the government to scrap its NHS plans.

He said: "I am sorry if what I'm setting out to do hasn't communicated itself."
