David Cameron defends scrapping school sports targets

The prime minister has told 5 liveBreakfast he stands by a decision to scrap a requirement on schools to offer pupils at least two hours a week of sport.

Labour has called for a cross-party ten year plan for school sports following the success of Team GB at the Olympics but David Cameron defended the government's plans.
