What happens when the police fail in their sworn duty to protect life, when they get it wrong or when police officers themselves break the law?

Britain's petrol and diesel is among the most expensive in Europe.

But the rising cost of fuel has also placed it at the heart of a growing criminal black market.

High value, untraceable and in constant demand, fuel has become the perfect illicit commodity.

A crime that stretches from drivers filling up at garage forecourts without paying - to a dark and dangerous underworld run by gangsters and former-terrorists.

With exclusive access to the Police and HM Customs and Revenue teams tasked with fighting fuel crime, Panorama
reporter Samantha Poling investigates this multi-million pound illegal business.

The programme also has evidence of the BNP's failure to declare major donations to the party.

As Darragh MacIntyre reports, the BNP which is better known for its controversial views on race is in debt and according to its own published accounts appears to be technically insolvent.

With millions of people enduring pay freezes and cuts, the National Minimum Wage is supposed at least to guarantee that pay can't drop below a legal minimum level.

But as the adult rate rises to £6.08 an hour, Panorama goes undercover to reveal how
some employers exploit loopholes or get round the rules so workers don't even get paid that minimum.

And it speaks to others, especially the young, who feel they're being forced to accept low - or even no - pay just to get work.
