A leading BBC journalist was recently offered money to take elocution lessons, because her accent comes from the north of England.

Mal Fletcher addresses these questions in this interview with BBC Radio's Mike Parr.

I think you asked the wrong question re climate change summit. The question is should it have been held? There are a lot more important issues they should have been discussing, e.g. people trafficking.

My son is 21 months old & has full Edward's Syndrome. He is a happy, beautiful child & gives so much to so many people. His life is as worthy as any other child. I believe the medical profession should help parents to want to give their children a chance of survival.
