Peter White talks to gamblers about high-stakes fixed odds gaming machines, where bets of £100 can be placed every 20 seconds. Betting shops are limited to four terminals in each branch, and have adopted a new code that allows users to set - and override - a limit on time and spending.

We hear why one MP thinks large cosmetics companies should explain their marketing policy, if they're prepared to sell skin-whitening products overseas but not in the UK.

Two parents explain why they were horrified to learn what their son had accessed on his tablet computer, despite switching on the parental lock.
