The latest news, sport and travel updates with Peter Allen and Aasmah Mir.

There's mutiny in the Labour ranks over the decision to suspend the former immigration minister Phil Woolas from the party. Our political correspondent John Pienaar, who broke the story, tests the mood, and Labour MP Graham Stringer explains why he thinks the ruling declaring the May election result null and void threatens the traditional cut and thrust of electioneering.

The Pakistan Cricket Board says it's shocked that the team's wicket keeper, Zulqarnain Haider, has fled after reported threats by bookmakers. We speak to Pakistan's High Commissioner, Wajid Shamsul Hasan, and Zakir Khan, the director of cricket operations for the Pakistan Cricket Board.

How can rugby protect its players? With evidence to suggest that the number of serious injuries in the sport is rising, we ask former Wasps and England winger Damian Hopley, now the CEO of the Rugby Players' Association, whether the demands of professionalism and player protection are at odds with each other.

The tea company Twinings has defended getting a grant from the EU to build a factory in Poland, just as it's leaving another deprived area - North Shields - with the loss of around 300 jobs. MEP for the North-East Stephen Hughes tells us why he's demanding that the grant be withdrawn.

And MPs are voting for their favourite curry house for the prestigious Tiffin Cup competition. On the top shortlist is the isolated Café Kismul on the Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides. We ask its owner about his speciality Spaghetti Marinara and Prawn Jaipuri.
