Description

The Conservative MP has died after being stabbed at his constituency surgery in Essex. As politicians on all sides pay tribute to one of their colleagues, Laura and Alex Forsyth get together with Adam to reflect on Sir David’s life and death, as well as the issue of MPs’ safety.

In this episode you can also hear an interview that we recorded earlier this afternoon, with the environmental activist, Lily Cole. Lily has been at the TED climate conference in Edinburgh, discussing her campaigning on solutions to climate change.

Today’s Newscast was made by Danny Wittenberg with producers Georgia Coan and Alix Pickles. The studio director was Emma Crowe and the assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
