Description

MPs have condemned claims made about Labour's deputy leader, Angela Rayner, as misogynistic. MP Kim Leadbeater tells Adam why stories like this put women off politics and she shares her own experiences of Parliament.

Also, millions of people in Beijing are being tested for Covid after a spike in cases. The BBC’s Kerry Allen explains why China is imposing strict lockdowns in lots of cities and how people are panic buying food in response.

And the government has said it wants to create an independent regulator to oversee football in England. Kieran Maguire, sports finance specialist, explains what difference it could make to fans and the way clubs are run.

Today’s Newscast was made by Alison Gee with Alix Pickles, Lauren Stanley and Cordelia Hemming. The technical producer was Gareth Jones and the editor is Jonathan Aspinwall.
