A closer look at scandal-rocked Spanghero

Can Spanghero win back the confidence of its consumers? We take a closer look at the company accused of knowingly selling horsemeat labelled as beef.

Finally, we look at fathers' rights in France, after a 42-year-old spent four days on a crane in protest at losing custody of his son.
