The initial MRI scan can potentially do the following:

  • Double the number of tumours caught
  • Reduce the number of men having biopsies by 27%
  • Reduce the number of men who are diagnosed with a cancer that later proves harmless by 5%
  • Save money for the NHS

  3. Could this be the biggest leap in prostate cancer diagnosis yet? Suspected prostate cancer sufferers should undergo an initial MRI scan to improve detection of aggressive forms of the disease and reduce the number of men undergoing unnecessary biopsies, a study has found. The report, published in British medical journal The Lancet, estimates an MRI could help 27% of men avoid an unwarranted biopsy, during which a small sample of tissue is removed from the body for examination.

  4. An avalanche has buried a mountainside hotel in central Italy and up to 30 people are missing. The avalanche came after four earthquakes struck the region on Wednesday, prompting officials to close schools and the subway system in Rome, about 100 miles to the southwest, as a precaution.

Two and a half thousand cabin crew working for British Airways Mixed Fleet long and short haul flights out of London Heathrow airport are in a dispute over what Unite has labelled "poverty pay".

The airline says it plans to merge a small number of short-haul services at Heathrow, and cancel 1% of its scheduled flights across the three days.

I opened my mind and autonomously transcended

– Saroo Brierley on finding his mother using Google and his memories as a five year old

The film Lion tells the extraordinary true story of Saroo Brierley, who at five years old was unwittingly carried 1,000 miles by train from his village home in India to Calcutta.

Not knowing where he had come from, or how to get back, he was taken to an orphanage and adopted by an Australian couple. But he never forgot his Indian family and 25 years later, after spending six years scouring Google Earth, he found some landmarks he recognised which led to him finding his mother.

Saroo joined us live from Sydney to tell us about his incredible journey to rediscover his past and the emotional moment he reconnected with his mother.

Do children as young as seven need to know about gender diversity?

Today a book aimed at children, parents and teachers called Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity? is published and it's already causing waves, with some criticising the fact it's aimed at children as young as seven.

Written to explain gender transitioning to pupils, many have said the book is too much, too young, with former Shadow Home Secretary Ann Widdicombe even saying: "You can't expect children to say that's not a boy when it obviously is."

We spoke to the book's author, LGBT activist CJ Atkinson. CJ has previously condemned media coverage over the book as misleading, inaccurate and potentially harmful to young people who identify as transgender.
