Agencies meant to protect children - including the police, social workers and the NHS - have been criticised in a report on the grooming and sexual exploitation of vulnerable girls in Rochdale. Plus, new documents published claiming an EU commissioner and a former Israeli prime minister were on a list of British and US intelligence targets. And it's Black Eye Friday - but what does it mean?

And Stephen's interview is with Bruce Jones, who rose to fame as the lovable layabout, Les Battersby in Coronation Street. He talks about how he found one of the Yorkshire Ripper's victims, life on Coronation Street, his attempt to kill himself which almost killed his wife as well... and ultimately, how he made it through depression.
