The number of Londoners living with HIV has hit a record high. The Health Protection Agency claims that of the 68 thousand people in England who carry the virus, nearly half of them are from the capital. They've seen an increase of 5 percent since 2010, with one in 12 gay men in London infected.

The Terrence Higgins trust warns that one in four people with HIV in London are undiagnosed. It's calling on anyone in the at-risk categories of gay men and men of African origin to get regularly tested for the virus. Almost half of people with HIV live or are treated in London.

Lisa Power from the Terrence Higgins Trust reacts to the latest HPA report.

Richard Bradley talks about what it's like to be given an HIV diagnosis. He says despite the great advances in treatment and management of the condition, he was shocked when he was told he was HIV positive.
