Business Bites: Report highlights 'risks' for Apple workers

An independent investigation by the US Fair Labor Association has found that workers at factories in China which produce iPhones and iPads for Apple were being exposed to major health and safety risks.

The report, requested by Apple itself, also highlighted excessive working hours and unpaid wages at the Foxconn factories - which also manufacture goods for many other tech companies.

Apple said it "fully accepted" the report's recommendations.

The BBC's Aaron Heslehurst discusses the key financial story of the day.
