Fertility treatment postcode lottery, Super-gentrification
How access to IVF treatment varies across the UK. The surprising fraud that starts with thieves breaking into a mailbox. A row over Birmingham's traditional silver hallmark.
For many couples, IVF offers their best or only hope of having a baby. In Scotland, couples will soon be entitled to three cycles of the treatment funded by the NHS. In Wales, two cycles are funded, but in England the provision is patchy and depends on decisions made locally by clinical commissioners. Fertility experts are concerned that a postcode lottery in the UK is becoming more pronounced.
We investigate a surprising fraud that starts with thieves breaking into a mailbox.
Is it now socially unacceptable to hang your washing out to dry? We hear that some residential areas have become "super-gentrified", with a new generation of incomers bringing with them surprising expectations of how others should behave.
