What can we expect from the Bank of England this Super Thursday?
It's been a hectic time economically since the EU Referendum - with Sterling devaluing, and most recently Mark Carney announcing he'll stay on as Governor just one additional year up to 2019. As the state of the UK economy post-Brexit remains uncertain, Share Radio's Matt Cox spoke to Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist at World First, about what we can expect from this Super Thursday during which the BoE will announce its quarterly Interest Report and the latest interest rate decisions.

John Hood, from the Equality Trust, discusses why millions are not saving
More than 6.5 million households have either none or very little savings according to new research from The Equality Trust. More than 40 per cent of working households have too little saved to pay even a month's worth of household bills, let alone cover one-off bills such as the typical £540 cost of a replacement boiler. Over a third of households owe more in debt that they have saved. Our reporter Mary Newman spoke to John Hood, from the Equality Trust.
