The growing criminal economy which is costing the UK a billion pounds a year - fake booze. We speak to Trading Standards and HMRC about what they are doing to tackle the problem.

Peter White has his dancing shoes on at the UK's first lunch beat disco. The project, which started in Sweden, is trying to get people away from their desks and dancing through their lunch breaks.

And we hear from the British expats trying to flee the crisis in the Eurozone .

Plus dark skies over Northumberland. Kielder wants to become Europe's largest dark sky park in an attempt attract more stargazing tourists to the area.

And In the final part of our series on social care we look at how care homes are adapting to council cuts.
