Karsten Kaltoft from Denmark is a childminder who claims he was sacked because he was too fat. He explains why he's going to court to try to make it illegal to discriminate against people who are obese. If he wins his case it could have wider implications for employers across the UK.

Plus how are Labour leader Ed Miliband's welfare reform proposals being received among the young unemployed? And we talk to callers from family businesses who tell us how they manage working together.
