The Business Secretary has said he has no intention of apologising over the privatisation of Royal Mail despite a critical report from the spending watchdog.
Vince Cable said the Government was right in its handling of the sale of Royal Mail shares, even thought the National Audit Office said ministers sold them for less than they were worth.
Labour described the sale as a "first class disaster".
At the end of the first day of trading the shares that the Government had sold for 330 pence changed hands for 455 pence - a rise of 38%.
The National Audit Office said that first-day trading performance tends to range "between a fall of 5% and and increase of 38%".
With the government accused of short-changing the taxpayer after selling its 60% stake in Royal Mail, ITV News looks at who now owns the firm.
