On the programme today we report the announcement by the new Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney, that interest rates will remain at record low levels at least until unemployment falls below seven percent. We hear concerns about the policy and are joined by Sir John Gieve, a former Deputy Governor of the bank. We have the latest from Nairobi where a fire has seriously damaged the airport and also from Yemen's Foreign Minister who expresses disappointment at the evacuation of British and American diplomatic staff from the country, after threats made by Al Qaeda. A judge joins us to explain how the judiciary are planning to improve training for judges dealing with sex abuse cases, after reports that a prosecutor in one such case described a 13 year old abuse victim as 'predatory and sexually experienced'.
