The former Director of Public Prosecutions in England and Wales, Keir Starmer, tells the programme more needs to be done to inspire victims' confidence and trust in the criminal justice system. He also explains the law on aiding and abetting suicide following the death of Coronation Street character Hayley Cropper, and discusses what the police should do when witnesses, such as Nigella Lawson, admit lawbreaking on the stand.

We get reaction as the FA charges West Bromwich Albion's Nicolas Anelka after his "Quenelle" gesture in a match against West Ham last month.

And as energy distribution companies are grilled by MPs over why thousands of customers were left without power for days over the Christmas period, following the severe weather that hit parts of the UK - we also hear from those hit by the cuts.
