We go to Bristol, where in some streets, cars and motorbikes are banned so children can play safely on the streets. This week Scotland brings in a law which makes it compulsory to fit a carbon monoxide alarm if you install a new heater. So why doesn't the rest of the UK do the same? And we'll also be looking at the millions of pounds being paid to solicitors who are making claims against NHS hospitals.
