Jo Coburn is here with the top political stories of the day. Labour romps home in the Barnsley Central by-election, but it was a dismal night for the Lib Dems, pushed into sixth place. We'll be speaking to the Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes. In the latest series of films about politicians who made a difference, we hear from former home secretary Jack Straw who risked everything to change the law on the age of consent. Jo is joined by Daniel Finkelstein, executive editor of the Times, and Steve Richards, columnist for the Independent.
