Losing Pounds, Keeping Pounds, Getting Your Hands on Pounds

How your mind is your best diet aid. The return of rural cash machines, big buildings and their effect on your mental health and driving with a black box... how accurate is it?

Are traditional diet plans losing out? With a push towards well-being and self-confidence, we ask the people behind Weight Watchers - which has just been re-branded to WW - whether group weigh-ins and calorie counting is the best way to get slim.

Link says it wants to put in MORE cash machines in rural areas....but as some communities have already lost theirs, how difficult is it to get one reinstalled.

New research suggests living in the city can affect our mental health. Our reporter Sam Fenwick's been finding out how architects are trying to solve the problem.

Do you know when your overdraft has kicked in? Banks were told to make this really clear for digital bank customers, but You & Yours has found one group that didn't make the deadline.....

And the black box that promises to reduce your car insurance...what happens when it sends out the wrong information?
