Ceremony to mark 100 years since the Battle of the Somme

  1. Britain will hold a two-minute silence at 7.28am this morning to honour those who fought in the Battle of the Somme, which began 100 years ago today. Around one million soldiers were killed or injured, including 420,000 British casualties. Ceremonies are being held across the country and in France to mark the centenary.

  2. Theresa May is reported to have built a commanding lead among MPs in the Tory leadership contest. The five candidates, including Michael Gove, will face the first ballot next Tuesday.

  3. A group of MPs says prostitution laws should be urgently rewritten so sex workers are no longer criminalised for soliciting. The government has promised to consider the recommendation.

  4. Scientists say the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctic has begun to shrink as a result of a ban on some pollutants. A study found it had reduced in size by one-and-a-half million square miles since 2000 - that's an area the size of India.

  5. Wales take on Belgium in their Euro 2016 quarter-final clash today. Manager Chris Coleman says it's their biggest match for nearly 60 years!

– Faye Valentine's son Luke died after heart surgery at Bristol Hospital

Following the Independent Review of Children's Cardiac Services in Bristol, NHS England pledged to ensure that "a consistent level of care is available for every patient in every part of the country".

We're joined by Faye Valentine, whose son Luke passed away following a heart procedure, and Rachel Pacua, whose son Jack has been left with permanent brain damage after open heart surgery, both at Bristol Hospital.

Both mothers are demanding justice after the hospital admitted the failing was the fault of the staff, but only in private.

Shoreham Crash one year on: Victim's fiancée calls for ban

They keep asking for daddy all the time

– Giovanna says she doesn't have time to grieve

As the air show season gets under way, the fiancée of one of the Shoreham Airshow disaster victims tells us it's time that we took action and banned them.

In her first broadcast interview, Giovanna Chirico tells Ben and Susanna that she is "upset and angry" over the state of a temporary memorial area and lack of plans for a permanent tribute. An arch by the Shoreham tollbridge has been left neglected, surrounded by overgrown bushes, thistles and wrappers.

Teenage waitress told to wear skirt and makeup 'for punters'

I was worried about losing my job if I didn't wear what they wanted me to wear

– Erin Sandilands

An 18-year-old waitress from Ayrshire has been awarded £3,500 after winning a sexual discrimination claim against her employer.

Erin Sandilands joined us this morning to describe how her employer told her to look "more feminine" for the punters, saying she simply needed to look "better". Erin tells Susanna and Ben that although she knew it was wrong, she didn't want to lose her job.

However, Erin did refuse to comply with the unacceptable demands and was subsequently told she wouldn't be given any more shifts.

Laura Bates from the Everyday Sexism Project also joined the debate to argue that workplace sexism has a disproportionate impact on women - but agreeing that men aren't immune to the issue.
