Susan Hulme reports from Westminster on an emotional debate on assisted dying.

MPs have spoken powerfully on both sides of the argument over assisted dying - with many offering their own family experiences of end-of-life decisions. Susan Hulme reports from Westminster on this and other stories, including: a Minister has told MPs he can see no reason why outsourcing firm Serco can't continue to supply services for the government - despite a £19m fine for fraud and false accounting over its provision of electronic tagging devices to the Ministry of Justice; and the Culture Secretary has said the BBC needs to come up with a better offer on free TV licences for elderly people. Editor: Rachel Byrne.
