Council chaos: what has gone wrong in West Sussex?

The leader of West Sussex County Council has quit her post - and apologised - on the day it was revealed the council could lose control of its Children's Services department.

Councillor Louise Goldsmith has been in the role 10 years. Her resignation comes days after the council's Chief Executive went on indefinite leave.

Ms Goldsmith acknowledged there were serious failings in Children's Services. She has been speaking to our reporter, Chloe Oliver.

Also interviewed: James Walsh, West Sussex County Council, Lib Dem; and Caroline Fife, Unison regional organiser.
