    E-cigarettes are a regular sight now, but users are increasingly adapting and modifying them. We speak to one man who was hospitalised when his rebuillt model exploded and left him hospitalised for nine days. And the BBC's Price of Football report is out - we take a specific look at the pressures involved in buying football kits for children. And the worrying statistics from the Care Quality Commission about the likelihood of someone living with dementia experiencing poor care. We've also got a look at the place you spend a fair proportion of your life in - the office. Why some are so good they're giving workers a spring in their step even on a wet Monday morning.

    This Week - many hospital trusts no longer supply ambulances to ferry people to outpatient appointments. But are they making sure the private contractors that replaced them are running on time - or even turning up? And we'll talk to the Cambridge researchers who have been tracking the cost of the food we eat for the past ten years. They've found that compared to food that's bad for us, the cost of a healthy diet is going up. And we're at the Paris Motor Show - having a gas about about the first mass produced hydrogen-powered car.
