Jacey Normand talks to pilots in the north west and investigates claims that the air they breathe on aircraft is being polluted.
And they say an English man's home is his castle. We meet a man in Birkenhead living in the only house left after his neighbours' homes have been pulled down.

  • The man living in last house standing

    It is a surreal sight - a single home lies stranded and alone in a large area of flattened streets in the centre of a demolished housing estate.

     

    Inside Out meets Charlie Wright who lives in the house, which was once surrounded by 600 council properties which made up Birkenhead's River Streets.

    Airline pilots are taking legal action following claims they are suffering from a condition known as 'aerotoxic syndrome' caused by the inhalation of engine fumes.

     

    But the medical establishment and civil aviation authorities refute their claims that aircraft toxins can damage the nervous system.
