    What could have happened to Jay Slater?

    What could have happened to Jay Slater?

    Jay Slater went missing while on holiday on the island of Tenerife last week. The last known contact the 19-year-old had was during a short phone call to a friend, in which he said he had missed a bus trying to get back to his accommodation and so was attempting to walk instead - a journey that would take 11 hours.  
      
    Rescue teams including helicopters, rescue dogs and drones have entered the second week of the search, as his family and friends become desperate for answers. What could have happened to him?  
      
    On this episode, Niall Paterson learns more about Jay Slater’s story and what might have happened to him from our correspondent Shingi Mararike. Plus, Sue Sim, former chief constable of Northumbria Police, joins Niall to discuss the social media wildfire surrounding the case.

    Why won't politicians really talk about social care?

    Why won't politicians really talk about social care?

    Four out of five people will need social care before they die - yet it's hardly been mentioned in the election campaign to date.   
      
    The architect of the government's delayed social care reforms, Sir Andrew Dilnot, has told Sky News politicians need to "grow up" and tackle the crisis in the sector.   
      
    On this episode of the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by political correspondent Rob Powell to discuss the current state of social care and what political parties are promising to change.   
      
    We also hear from Norman Phillips who is a full-time carer for his wife, Ros, who lives with multiple sclerosis and dementia. He tells them the physical, mental and financial toll the lack of access to social care is taking on their lives.

    Putin, North Korea and a ballistic bromance

    Putin, North Korea and a ballistic bromance

    Russia and North Korea have signed a defence pact to help each other in the event of aggression against them.

    As part of a two day trip, Putin visited Pyongyang, greeted by a red carpet, roses and ceremonial gunfire before signing what Kim Jong Un has called an alliance.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson speaks to Sky's Moscow correspondent Ivor Bennett and Beijing correspondent Nicole Johnston about what this unusual relationship between the leaders means for their respective countries, and the rest of the world.

    Poll suggests record Tory slump - what could change in two weeks?

    Poll suggests record Tory slump - what could change in two weeks?

    Sky News has partnered with YouGov for the general election campaign and today the second of their three MRP polling projections is out. 
     
    It makes for very bleak reading for the Conservatives, suggesting they have not made any gains during the campaign and could slump to historically low seat numbers.   
      
    The poll also suggests Labour's majority is up, the Liberal Democrats are up as well and Reform UK could win several seats.  
      
    On this episode, Niall Paterson analyses the implications of today’s poll with our deputy political editor Sam Coates. 
      
    Plus, Sky’s political correspondent Tamara Cohen joins us from Edinburgh where she was at the launch of the SNP manifesto.

    'We need to have an adult conversation about migration'

    'We need to have an adult conversation about migration'

    More people in the UK think immigration has a negative impact on society than a positive one, according to a YouGov survey for Sky News.    
      
    In the first general election since Brexit, all the major parties mention migration in their manifestos. Both the Conservatives and Labour are placing promises to tackle illegal boat crossings high on their list of promises if they get into Number 10.   
      
    So what do voters think about immigration and how could it affect these elections?  
    Host Niall Paterson is joined by Sky News’ community correspondent, Becky Johnson, who’s been speaking to voters in Swindon about their views. Plus, economics and data editor Ed Conway digs into the statistics to reveal exactly how big an impact migration, both legal and illegal, has on the UK.

    Reform's election promises examined | Royal return

    Reform have launched their manifesto which they're calling "Our Contract With You" in South Wales. 

    The "contract" is promising big spending, dwarfing what Labour and the Conservatives have committed to.

    In this episode Niall Paterson gets analysis on what's in the "contract" from our chief political correspondent Jon Craig. 

    He also speaks with our royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills about the Princess of Wales and the King – and their return to public life.

    -Kemi Badenoch, Conservative and Unionist Party  
    -Erik Bonino, Independent 
    -Edward Gildea, Green Party

    -Niko Omilana, Independent 
    -Smita Rajesh, Liberal Democrats  
    -Grant StClair-Armstrong, Reform UK
