Girls in gangs

Reformed gang member Tracey Miller owned her first knife at just 13-years-old, and carried a gun around in her school bag.

Putting pen to paper, Tracey has written an autobiography, hoping that she can lift the lid on the terrifying underworld that nearly claimed her life.

Overcoming a stammer

I'd rather have someone cut off a limb than lose my speech

– Vicky Croft, who has suffered with a stutter since regaining her speech after a stroke

Many of us take speaking for granted. But what if the words in your head just won't come out? For over half a million people in Britain, a stutter affects their lives every single day.

Stammer School follows a cast of struggling stammerers as they enrol on an intensive four day course called the McGuire Programme.

The programme features Vicky Croft, who was a fluent speaker until she suffered a minor stroke last December, and Debbie Rasaki, a nursery nurse who has stammered since the age of 4. Vicky and Debbie are here today, along with Rich Whincup who was himself a chronic stammerer but is now a course leader on the McGuire Programme.

Search for Allan goes on despite cruel trolls

On Saturday November 2 2013, Allan Bryant Jr. went missing after leaving a nightclub in Fife, Scotland.

Allan's family immediately started a massive internet campaign ('Find Allan Bryant Jnr.') to track down their son.

The Facebook page has over 10,000 followers, getting significant attention in the local and national press. However, in April this year internet trolls took advantage of the page to send graphic messages to the Bryant family, falsely claiming he had been tortured and murdered.

Allan's mum, Marie Degan and sister Amy Bryant are here to talk about their search for Allan and how the trolling has affected them.
