National Trust, co-housing & the parking company kicked out of its own trade association

Listen in pop-out player

The National Trust wants to be more welcoming, letting visitors treat historic houses as if they were their own: helping themselves to books off the shelves, playing the piano etc. But just how far is it prepared to let people go and is this really what its members want? The National Trust's chairman, Sir Simon Jenkins, tells us all about it.

A private parking company has been kicked out of its own trade association for allegedly breaching a professional code of conduct. We discover what it means for both the company and for motorists issued with tickets.

And coming together to live apart: we report on the co-housing communities tackling isolation by offering shared meals and activities to members who live in their own homes.
