UK retailer to compensate Bangladesh victims

Listen in pop-out player

A UK retailer is to compensate victims of the collapsed clothing factory in Bangladesh. Primark says it'll provide long-term help, including for children who have lost parents. Also the EU is to ban pesticides which some scientists say are contributing to the decline in bee populations. We hear from campaigners and ask whether there's enough evidence to justify the two year ban. We're in Spain to hear why the region of Cantabria has banned fracking - just as the UK government considers 'sweeteners' to get British towns and villages on side with gas extraction projects. And why an interview with the Argentinian economy minister has gone viral.
