We spent £4.3 billion last year on our pets - that's more than we paid for cakes and bread. Winifred investigates what we spend on our animals - particularly our dogs.

We hear from Geography graduate Cait Reilly who was told to stack shelves at Poundland for 2 weeks in order to claim Jobseekers Allowance. She's launching a legal challenge against the DWP whose new Jobseeker rules
came in earlier this year.

Plus Facebook is working with a 'not for profit' company to set up a 'University' to help unemployed young people develop and create apps.

We have information on a new birth and death 'One Stop Shop' which, it's claimed, will save the government millions of pounds. One phone call should trigger a process in which up to 28 different government departments are contacted on your behalf.

And we speak to the man who owns Britain's oldest fridge.... when was it built?
