Inflation rise to 2.3% 'reasonable' following weaker pound
The UK's inflation rate jumped in February to 2.3%, according to the Office for National Statistics, placing it above the Bank of England's 2% target rate for CPI inflation.

Plus the Bank of England's chief economist Andy Haldane says mediocrity in UK business is to blame for the productivity crisis - is he right? John Barrass, Deputy Chief Executive of the Wealth Management Association, joined Share Radio's Ed Bowsher to analyse these stories and more.

What legacy will former deputy first minister of Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness leave?
The former deputy first minister of Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness, has died at the age of 66. He was Sinn Fein's lead negotiator during the peace process in which a power-sharing agreement was reached between Republicans and Unionists. The former IRA chief made one of his last public appearances in January when he resigned over the DUP leader's handling of a botched green energy scheme. And we now know when Theresa May will officially start the formal process to take the UK out of the EU. To discuss all these stories and more, Georgie Frost was joined by Tim Evans Professor of Business and Political Economy at Middlesex University London.
