with Graham Rogers

As both our local councils announce plans to save considerably more money next year than first thought, we examine the impact it's going to have. There are calls for business rates to be frozen this year to stop more shops leaving popular High Streets like Marlborough, the British Retail Consortium explains how the rates are set, and what the consequences of further increases could be. And with exactly a year until the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics, we speak to Trowbridge bobsleigh competitor, John Jackson, live from Russia where he's in training.
