The world's first fully accessible route has opened in Buckinghamshire.

The 5km Stoke Mandeville Way has been adapted to meet the needs of people with mobility problems or sensory impairment.

Yet millions of disabled people still find simply getting around difficult. We'll be discussing this from 1pm.

Also - should prisoner's get better mental health care?

Suicide rates in prison are the highest they've been for years.

There were 89 prison suicides in England and Wales from the end of March last year to the start of this month, and Bedford Prison has among the highest rates in the country (latest figs show 2011 Bedford 4 cases, 7% of total)

We'll meet a man whose stepbrother took his own life in Woodhill prison in Milton keynes and who is now trying to find out how it was allowed to happen.
