    Britain's car industry after Brexit

    Britain's car industry after Brexit

    As Britain's EU departure draws closer we examine the future health of its motor industry. Professor David Bailey of Birmingham University's Business School tells us the challenges the sector faces. Sigrid de Vries is general secretary of the European Association of Automotive Suppliers, CLEPA, and explains the implications for the EU-wide motor industry if the UK government chooses to diverge on automotive standards. We get the perspective of a components manufacturer with Mark Noonan, chairman of Sarginsons Industries and Greg McDonald CEO of the Goodfish Group, a manufacturing company. And we discuss the impact on workers with Mick Graham, who is convenor for the union Unite at Jaguar Land Rover's plant in Solihull. Also in the programme, the Indian government is trying once again to sell its stake in national flag carrying airline Air India. The BBC's Suranjana Tewari in Mumbai explains why it has proven difficult up to now. Plus our regular workplace commentator Stephanie Hare considers how to keep our bodies healthy at work.

    China coronavirus 'spreads before symptoms show'

    China coronavirus 'spreads before symptoms show'

    A new coronavirus that has spread to more than 2,000 people is infectious in its incubation period - before symptoms show - making it harder to contain, Chinese officials say. Health minister Ma Xiaowei told reporters the ability of the virus to spread appeared to be strengthening.
    Kenya is suffering under its worst infestation of locusts in 70 years. Hundreds of millions of the insects have swarmed into the country from Somalia and Ethiopia. Those two countries have not have not experienced such a plague in 25 years.
    Also in the programme, the United States Department of Transportation is planning on changing its advice to airlines on how to handle the thorny issue of people who wish to travel with emotional support animals.
    Plus - the small Scottish island of North Ronaldsay, off Orkney, is home to just 50 people and 2,000 sheep, which have been grazing the shoreline for thousands of years and since the mid 19th century, when a dyke was built along the length of the coastline, cutting them off from the grasslands, they’ve been existing exclusively on seaweed they forage from the beach. It’s long been known that their peculiar diet has turned their meat into a delicacy but scientists have now become extremely interested in how the sheep digest the seaweed because apparently, they emit far less methane than livestock eating ordinary feed. Studies are now taking place to see if the sheep can teach us how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from all stock animals.
