Peter Allen and Anna Foster hear the reaction from Derby after Mick Philpott, the man who set fire to his home killing six children, is sentenced to life in prison.

As Mick Philpott begins his sentence in Wakefield Prison - Peter and Anna speak to an ex-prisoner to find out how he'll be treated by fellow inmates at Wakefield Prison. With North Korea threatening to launch nuclear weapons against the US, Peter and Anna find out what life is really like for people living under the rule of Kim Jong-Un. Plus they speak to a 13-year-old girl from Surrey who hasn't stopped hiccuping for the last ten weeks. And they hear from a swimmer who was to compete against Lance Armstrong in an event this weekend before the disgraced cyclist decided to pull out.
