Would you swap your day job for the thin blue line?

Would you give up your job to walk the thin blue line? Seven ordinary people - from a dance teacher to a phlebotomist - are about to make a life changing decision...they're taking on the frontline and becoming police officers.

ITV has exclusive access to Surrey Police, revealing what it is like to be on the front line without any experience. They come face to face with violent criminals and learn to deal with abusive members of the public who do not respect the police.

PC Ryan Soper quit his job in IT to become a police office. Talking about facing people twice the size of you, it's daunting and you need to be both mentally and physically prepared. 'Your body's dumped with adrenaline and after a while you get used to the adrenaline and learn to channel it,' adding 'it's about learning how to play people, so that they can play to your advantage.' He says officers are proud to patrol unarmed.

The loneliest Sunday

Esther Rantzen's Silver Line Helpline has received one million calls from people over the age of 65 in the past two and a half years since it started. This year they think they will receive 125,000 more calls than Childline. Over half of callers say they have literally no one else to speak to, 90% of callers say they live alone and around 5% report present or historic abuse. Around two-thirds of calls are at nights and weekends.

People have lost their loved ones, their health or even their mobility

HRT dangers underestimated

The risks of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may have been underestimated, experts have said. Taking the treatment to combat the effects of the menopause could mean that women are 2.7 times more likely to develop breast cancer than those who are not, a new study found. Women taking combined HRT are more likely to develop the disease, with risk increasing the longer it is used, the study found.

‘It’s about perspective … it depends how you see how big that risk is’ says Dr Hilary on new HRT cancer risk. He points out that the risks of smoking and being overweight can have a greater effect on cancer.
