Are we seeing the death of the milkman?

A family milk round has been forced to close after 114 years due to the supermarket price war. The Bond Brothers, one of the country's oldest milk rounds, admits it can no longer afford to continue. For more than 100 years, their white milk floats have been a familiar sight as they whirred and clinked through Buckinghamshire's villages.

The family business was established in 1901, when Fred Bond milked cows by hand and delivered bottles by horse and cart to customers including Winston Churchill. The business now makes little profit and cannot afford to continue to deliver to their 350 customers.

Every day, the UK's 5,000 milkmen and women deliver to around 2.5 million homes. However, in 1980 89% of milk drunk at home arrived courtesy of of the milkman but in 2015 this has dropped to just 3%. How long will it be until we witness the death of the milkman?

Should term time holidays be allowed?

A long-running debate has been reignited, after Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said families should be able to take children out of school during term-time.

He argues that for poorer families, the cost of taking holidays is too high during the peak periods, like summer - and so they can miss out.

We look at holiday packages being offered by a tour operator before the autumn half-term to see what the difference is.

Meet Betty, Britain's oldest slimmer!

My motivation is to live life as full as you can, not to sit around doing nothing. If you've got a dream do it and you'll succeed and age is only a number on a paper.

– Betty Jones

Betty Jones is the oldest slimmer in Britain who puts the rest of us to shame. The great grandmother, 92, lost seven stone after hitting the gym five times a week and is now taking swimming lessons.

The former nurse from Barnsley weighed 17 stone when doctors told her she needed surgery - so she started to eat healthier, joined the gym and lost the weight she had put on while running a fish and chip shop. She's just been named as Slimmer of the Year by Slimming World.

Well done you, Betty!

Migrant situation reaches crisis point

Warning: The above video contains images some may find upsetting

David Cameron is facing accusations of turning the UK into a pariah state after shocking pictures have appeared of a dead Syrian child on a beach Turkey. The Prime Minister has said no to taking any more migrants but will these pictures force him to change his mind?

In Budapest fights have broken out in the main square by the station where police have been checking papers. Hungary rejected 99 percent of asylum request last year. Afghan migrants have also been found close to death in lorry in Austria.

Meanwhile, Kent County Council tells GMB its centres for children are so full its opening two more. They are running out of foster families and have 727 migrant children in care - up from 369 in April.

These young people predominantly are extraordinarily resilient

– Paul Carter, leader of Kent County Council

In a GMB poll...

  • One in ten said they would offer their home to a migrant
  • Six in ten say they wouldn't offer their home to a migrant
