All supermarkets in England are now charging 5p for plastic bags and the Supermarkets are bracing themselves for an increase in shopping basket thefts.

When Yeonmi Park escaped the dictatorship of North Korea at the age of 13, she realised she had so much to learn. Brainwashed for her entire life, she knew nothing of love, she didn't know how to express opinions, she had never heard of a bank account. All she knew was how to be loyal to Great Leader Kim Jong Il. Since his death, his son, Kim Jong Un runs the country with the same iron fist.
She joins us on the sofa for her first UK TV interview ahead of her speech at the Women in the World Summit in London this evening. Her new book, In Order To Live, reveals all about her life living under dictatorship.
BOOK: In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park is out now

The Milk Tray Man is returning to our screens as Cadbury launches a search for his successor. In a new advert, James Coombes - a Milk Tray man from the 80s - calls for "a new hero to deliver the famous box".
But in 2015 is this our idea of romance and chivalry? Or is it sexist and out of date? Journalists Catherine Cooper and Kelly Rose Bradford join us to discuss the chocolate box icon.
Three years ago, Karissa Cox and Richard Carter were wrongly accused of child abuse against their six-week-old baby. Despite being cleared yesterday, the couple face a fight if they are ever to be reunited with their now-adopted child again.
Joining us today to discuss the issues surrounding cases like this are Denise Robertson, who is outraged at what she calls a lack of 'proper investigation' in child abuse cases, and, social worker Joanna Nicolas, who argues that cases like this are extremely rare and says a criminal conviction is not what's important when discussing the interests of child welfare.
