Sturgeon plans to keep Scotland in single market - with Maurice Smith
Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has today announced her proposals to keep the country in the European single market. The first minister says Scottish membership of the European Economic area and European Free Trade Association would allow it to stay part of the UK but still enjoy single market access. She previously suggested there could be another independence referendum if the proposals are dismissed by the UK Government - but she doesn't think that'll happen. For more analysis, Share Radio's Juliette Foster was joined on the line by Maurice Smith, Share Radio's Scotland Correspondent.

Business as unusual: Russian ambassador shot, Berlin market crash, & more - with Jasper Lawler
Europe's equity markets are trading higher, helped by a busy year-end for corporate deal making and further signs that Italy is making progress on shoring up its weak banking sector. However, business is taking place against an uncertain backdrop, underscored by the assassination of Russia's ambassador to Turkey and the murder of 12 people at a Christmas market in Berlin which police have described as a "probable terrorist attack". Concerns about Greece have also emerged on the financial radar after the US credit ratings agency Moody's said the country is about to enter a troubling new phase in its seven year old debt crisis. For more analysis, Share Radio's Juliette Foster was joined on the line by Jasper Lawlor, senior market analyst at London Capital Group.
