Most people know what a domestic violence refuge is. But probably haven’t heard of independent domestic violence advisors – who help victims who are at high risk of being murdered. So I followed along two for the day, and wrote about it for Inside Housing.

Veterans often come out of the armed services either traumatised or institutionalised. It takes time to get to life on ‘civvy street’ (yes, they do refer to it like that!) One specialist housing project for ex-homeless veterans has launched a bakery, run by their residents. Now they’re launching a line of biscuits.

Thousands of homes are being given planning permission by councils in England, despite flood-risk warnings from the Environment Agency. I did a major investigation using Freedom of Information requests to uncover the scale of the problem.

Wildness is a documentary about a bar in Los Angeles called the Silver Platter. Charmingly, the bar itself narrates the film, in Spanish. I reviewed it for The F-Word.
