Rural Poverty, Talking Debt, Outgrown Fashion and Travelling in Style

The money problems hitting the rural community. Also the parents chasing in on the high-end clothes that don't fit their little ones any more and letting the train take the strain.

Poverty in the countryside - a new study shows just how bad it can be.

The sleeper train is back between Scotland and London - but what is it like?

The drugs that don't work - why we are becoming immune to some treatments.

And the high-end clothes that just don't fit any more - the parents chasing in on the clothes that deserve another go.
