The future of Britain's most senior tax collector, David Hartnett, is in doubt with the Public Accounts Committee considering calling on him to step down.

The move follows an error over the tax bill for the investment bank Goldman Sachs which lost the taxpayer nearly £10m, and a deal last year which MPs claim saved Vodafone up to £8bn.

Finance correspondent Simon Gompertz reports on the allegations against Dave Hartnett and Treasury Select Committee member Jesse Norman MP examines his position.
