Description

Ms Taylor, 26, a black hospital worker, was shot six times as three officers raided her home on 13 March. A grand jury in the city of Louisville returned only one minor charge against one of the officers, for shots which hit a neighbouring apartment.

Also on the programme: The British finance minister announces a new support scheme for businesses and workers to help them survive the enduring impact of the coronavirus pandemic; the British newspaper editor Harold Evans, has died aged 92.
