Racially abused onboard a Ryanair flight

It’s a horrific verbal attack which left her feeling ‘stunned’ and ‘depressed’. Seventy-seven-year-old Delsie Gayle was subjected to a tirade of racial abuse from a fellow passenger on board a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to London at the weekend.

Captured on film, the male passenger is seen shouting at Ms Gayle, who suffers from arthritis, telling her to move seats so he could get to the window seat. Despite Delsie’s disability, the man proceeded to shout and swear until she moved.

So far, Ryanair have not apologised to Ms Gayle who was returning from a holiday intended to cheer her up after the anniversary of her husband’s death.

Delsie and daughter Carol join us in the studio as the matter is reported to Essex police.

What is Raynaud's phenomenon?

Raynaud's phenomenon is common and doesn't usually cause any severe problems. You can often treat the symptoms yourself by keeping warm. Sometimes it can be a sign of a more serious condition.

Raynaud's affects your blood circulation. When you're cold, anxious or stressed, your fingers and toes may change colour. Some people also find their ears, nose, lips or nipples are affected. Symptoms can include: pain, numbness, pins and needles or difficulty moving the affected area.

Things you can do yourself:
keep your home warm
wear warm clothes during cold weather – especially on your hands and feet
exercise regularly – this helps improve circulation
try breathing exercises or yoga to help you relax
eat a healthy, balanced diet

Don't smoke – improve your circulation by stopping smoking
Don't drink too much tea, coffee or cola – caffeine and other stimulants can stop you relaxing

When to see a GP:
your symptoms are very bad or getting worse
Raynaud's is affecting your daily life
you only have numbness on one side of your body
you also have joint pain, skin rashes or muscle weakness
you're over 30 and get symptoms of Raynaud's for the first time
your child is under 12 and has symptoms of Raynaud's

How to bag a billionaire

They say money isn’t everything, but it certainly appears to be for one woman. Anna Bey has over 100,000 online followers who are being taught how to bag a filthy rich boyfriend. She teaches everything from how to behave on a yacht (hint: you don’t wear shoes), to dealing with the ‘exhaustion’ of moving from a millionaire to a billionaire boyfriend.

It’s time for Anna to put her money where her mouth is and tell us why she has no respect for men who want to split the bill and why female empowerment is all about looking for status and wealth in a partner.

'I can't feed my children on Universal Credit'

Universal Credit was meant to simplify the benefits system but it’s been heavily criticised for delays, mismanagement and inconsistencies.

Single mum of two Stacey Gleave says it has left her penniless and suicidal as she’s stuck in a spiral of ever-mounting debt.

Alongside her is financial journalist Jasmine Birtles, who thinks Universal Credit has been administered in an inhumane way, but she insists Stacey - and others like her - can access much needed cash and support if they simply know where to look.
