Is the rise of budget supermarkets killing off our high-end supermarkets like Waitrose? Fraser McKevitt of Kantar Worldpanel gives his analysis
Supermarkets, everyone has their favourite. However some new players in the market have definitely shaken things up. We've seen the rise of 'budget' supermarkets such as Aldi and Lidl becoming the new popular way to shop, Aldi recently overtook Co-op to become the UK's fifth largest grocer. So where does this leave the more 'high-end' supermarkets such as Waitrose? It was reported yesterday that Waitrose is planning to close some of it's stores, so could this mean the beginning of the end of the 'middle-class' supermarket? Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar Worldpanel gave Share Radio his analysis.

Solicitor Beverley Sunderland of Crossland Employment Solicitors on dress code discrimination
Do bosses have the right to tell their female workers what they should wear to work? The question rose to prominence in 2015 when receptionist Nicola Thorpe was sent home by her employers and told to change the flat shoes she was wearing for a pair of high heels. The publicity surrounding the case led to an inquiry and a report which concluded that while the law prevents employers from imposing dress codes on their staff, it doesn't do enough to protect employees from discriminatory practices and unsafe working conditions. Well for more analysis Juliette Foster spoke to solicitor Beverley Sunderland of Crossland Employment Solicitors.
