Labour accuse government of 'cynical spin' on hospitals

Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham has defended the former Labour government in light of Prof Sir Bruce Keogh's investigation into 14 hospitals in England.

Mr Burnham welcomed what he called a "balanced" report but criticised the government for blaming Labour for the failings it uncovered.

He accused the government of "one of the more cynical spin operations of recent times".
