                David Cameron has kicked off a charm offensive to win support for European Union reforms. He met Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, at Chequers, before embarking on a tour of European capitals. We look at his chances of winning support on the continent. Pre-payment meters can make energy more expensive and yet a 5 Live investigation has found large numbers are being fitted forcibly under a court order.

                Britain's membership of the European Union is the issue that's exercised business minds all week. Ahead of David Cameron's attendance at the first EU leaders summit since the General Election, we discuss the issue with the eurosceptic lobby group Business for Britain. As the UK experiences price deflation for the first time in more than 50 years, we ask why the cost of houses keeps rising. We also speak to one of a growing number of young pub landlords, and we hear a first hand account of the Kent earthquake from Mickey Clarke.
