How the banking sector's tackling the UK's £2m/day fraud problem
New figures show that financial fraud costs the UK around £2 million a day - or a total of £769 million in 2016. That's a small increase on 2015, and has prompted the UK's major banks and building societies to come together for Take Five Day, a national event to raise awareness of fraud. Share Radio's Sara Macham spoke to Jon Sacker from Financial Fraud Action UK, which published the figures.

Do you know the true value of your most treasured possessions?

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.
