Featuring former Royal Air Force fighter pilot Eric Carter

Simon talks to fighter pilot Eric Carter, the sole survivor of 81 Squadron, who in 1941, was despatched on a top secret mission code named Force Benedict. It's aim was to defend the port of Murmansk in Northern Russia against the Nazis. His story is now the basis of a book which came about after a chance meeting with Radio 2's very own Dermot O'Leary. Sally has the latest travel updates, Matt is on the sport and Rebecca has the top business stories. Plus there's a new confession, but will The Collective forgive?
