The former chair of the national infrastructure commission has said Carillion's collapse is "one of the major corporate scandals of our time."

Lord Adonis also suggested books and films will be made about the demise of Carillion, which has entered liquidation, and even likened the debacle to the Enron scandal.

Host Julia Hartley-Brewer asked Adonis, who quit his infrastructure role last month in protest over Brexit, whether any criminality was involved.

The Peer responded by saying "we just don't know," adding that further investigation was needed before conclusions can be drawn.
