Maria Balshaw tells Kirsty Wark that the Tate has decided to shun donations from the US Sackler family.

The Tate's board of trustees said it would decline further donations, which comes after the withdrawal of a £1m National Portrait Gallery grant.

The Sackler family is facing legal action over its production of opioid drugs, which are linked to deaths. The Sackler family deny the allegations.
