Royal Mail sell-off is confirmed

The government is to go ahead with a complete sale of Royal Mail.

Business Secretary Vince Cable made the commitment after an independent report said the outlook for the postal service had worsened.

A new independent company will be formed to run all the sorting and delivery operations.

Hugh Pym reports.
