Dotun Adebayo with news from around the world. The victims in the US school massacre are named and parents of the 20 six and seven year old children who were killed pay their tributes. Robbie Parker talks about his six year old daughter Emilie - an 'incredible person' that touched the lives of all those people she met. One of the teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School tells how she barricaded the classroom door to protect her class from the gunman and President Barack Obama makes plans to visit the town in Connecticut.
Christian Heyne of the Coalition To Stop Gun Violence tells Dotun that he started to campaign after his own parents were shot dead by a gunman in 2005 and Professor Larry Barton tells of the psychological traumas that will inevitably haunt the survivors and the emergency services who were first on the scene.
