List of axed quangos is published by coalition

The government has announced a huge cull of quangos in a move it says will improve accountability and cut costs.

It will axe 192 public bodies such as the Film Council and the Audit Commission while another 118 will be merged.

The future of some bodies is still under consideration but 380 will definitely be kept, the list says.

James Landale reports.
