What is really in your curry?

Hidden ingredients in takeaway meals, a new breed of taxi firms and how old brands stay popular. Plus more consumer news with Winifred Robinson.

Three people with severe allergies have died in recent months after eating curries thought to have been contaminated with peanuts. We hear why it's happening and the concerns of trading standards officers about hidden ingredients in our food.
