As Israel orders its forces to respond to Hamas rocket attacks, we speak to a British woman inside Gaza who is calling herself a human shield - she's stationing herself at a hospital which has been hit during the conflict. Also today we look at a scheme that places adults with special needs in the care of foster parents rather than care homes - how does the arrangement work out for everyone involved? Plus are children in nurseries at risk of being indoctrinated with extremist views? The department for education has confirmed that it has received 450 responses from the public and organisations raising concerns about the links between extremist groups and nursery providers, such as the teaching of creationism. Councils will now have extra powers to withdraw funding - but is the risk really that great?
