Cosmetic surgery, overcrowded housing, and training to be a barista

Listen in pop-out player

We've heard from the people hurt by housing benefit reform. On today's programme we'll be talking to the people it's meant to help - including a single mum who says she's trapped in her one bedroom flat. The views of publishers in New York and here in the UK about Amazon's decision to buy the world's largest literary social network - Goodreads. Plus, we'll hear from a woman addicted to cosmetic surgery about why she thinks rules around who can do what procedures need to be tightened.
