Cavalier King Charles Health Screening; Fuel Banks; Gene Tests

Beebee the King Charles Cavalier has a heart condition called Mitral Valve Disease - her owner tells us why she wants the Kennel Club to introduce compulsory screening for it. A petition has been signed by more than ten thousand people.

Food banks have sprung up all over the UK in the last few years, people are sent to them with vouchers by Social Services, Citizens Advice and GPs. Now NPower is planning to work alongside food banks to help people who can't pay for their gas and electricity. Winifred Robinson finds out how it will work.

Plus the Royal College of GPs is urging caution on the use of gene testing kits now on sale on the high street. They tell you whether you might be prone to illnesses including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. We ask the company who make them whether enough advice is being handed out with the information.

Presented by Winifred Robinson
Produced by Natalie Donovan.
