Peter White pays tribute to PC David Rathband whose death was announced this week.
The Welfare Reform bill is now law so the days of Disability Living Allowance are numbered. It will be replaced by something called Personal Independence Payments (or PIPs) but Andy Barrick from the RNIB is concerned that these may exclude some of the needs of blind and partially-sighted people.
And Lee Kumutat goes shopping with Susannah Hancock and Pardeep Gill to road test a new personal shopping service where the staff have had visual impairment awareness training.

Presented by Peter White
Produced by Cheryl Gabriel.
