Jeremy Hunt announces hospital food standards shake-up

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is announcing measures to try to improve the food served to hospital patients in England.

Recommendations put together by a government-commissioned panel include serving fish twice a week, and not using salt when cooking rice, potatoes and vegetables.

Mr Hunt says the new standards will be enforced through legally-binding contracts.

Branwen Jeffreys reports.
