Chris brings you the main news of the day about Rotherham Council - the government are investigating why a foster carer couple had 3 children removed from their care - because they are members of the UK Independence party. Chris also discusses the latest in technology and science and a look back at the past week online in the Week In Web with Olly Mann and Helen Zaltman.
