The lasting effect of the horsemeat scandal

It's nine months since traces of horsemeat were found in food on sale in the UK. We look at how our attitudes and behaviour has changed.

It's a fraud that costs businesses around £40 billion a year worldwide, but are phone companies doing enough to warn customers about the danger of having their phone systems hacked? Listener Gavin Stewart says they aren't - he faced a bill for over £3,000. We also hear what the industry is doing to tackle the problem.

Plus why some grapes harvested in the Champagne region could end up in industrial cleaning products rather than fizzy wine.

And we visit the GPs who are offering consultations via Skype. It's something the Conservatives say they want to see more of.
