1 in 10 of young Brits are prepared to leave the UK to get onto the property ladder
Almost half of young people in the UK think it's harder than ever before to get on the property ladder. A fifth have told a survey by Halifax they'd be prepared to leave the country in order to buy their own home. Just over a quarter of 18 to 34-year-olds think they'll never have their own property, and one in eight reckon they'll be renting forever. So is home-ownership really out of reach for young buyers? Or is this just pessimism from the younger generation? Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist spoke to Nigel Cassidy to explain the results.

UK based airlines may lose routes if they fail to relocate post-Brexit
Airlines based in the UK could lose major routes if they don't move to Europe post-Brexit. EU officials say carriers including easyJet and Ryanair will need to relocate their headquarters or sell off shares if they want to continue flying within continental Europe. Regulations say airlines must have a significant base on EU territory and a majority of their capital shares must be EU-owned. Meetings have taken place between the airlines and the EU's Brexit taskforce last week. Thomas van der Wijngaart, an aviation expert at the legal firm Clyde & Co spoke to Share Radio's James Brydges.

Indyref 2: What's at stake for the North Sea?
Since the 2014 vote, there have been sweeping changes in both the North Sea industry and to the UK's political landscape, the two most critical being the oil price plunge and last year's Brexit vote. Companies operating in the UKCS have faced a turbulent few years as they sought to survive the downturn by cutting costs to ensure cash flow. The offshore industry has been a cornerstone of the UK economy, and will play a vital role in a second referendum campaign. Nigel Cassidy was joined by Fiona Legate, senior analyst at Wood Mackenzie to discuss how, despite the oil price crash, (pre-tax) £44 billion is still attributed to fields in Scottish waters.
