The Cost of Dying

One in four terminally ill people of working age find themselves in poverty. For them and their families, the agony of grief is compounded by financial worries.

Matt hears from people pushed to bankruptcy by their illness, and discusses the Marie Curie charity campaign to give them the state pension.

Plus Finkelvitch: Columnists Daniel Finkelstein and David Aaronovitch ask whether it's time to sack Nadhim Zahawi, failures in the probation service, and political fantasists.
