Duration:
55 minutes

Buying local is what we're supposed to do if we care about our food and the planet. But is it always as sustainable as we think? The journalist and restaurant critic, Jay Rayner, is not so sure.

We report on the young people who have ended up working for much less than the minimum wage after responding to misleading job adverts.

And got a special occasion coming up but can't find the right frock? How thousands of women are turning to a new generation of bespoke dress makers.
