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".
