Laura K is back on the day the Tory leadership ballot closes. And another battle is being drawn between the release of Lord of the Rings prequel (The Rings of Power) and the Game of Thrones prequel (House of the Dragon), so we get got two super fans (and politicians), Labour MP Jess Phillips (Thrones) and Tory MP Rob Halfon (Rings), to fight it out. Also, Danny Shaw, ex-BBC Home Affairs Correspondent, explains why Cressida Dick, ex-Met Police Chief, is back in the news. Today’s Newscast was made by Tim Walklate with Cordelia Hemming, Alix Pickles and Daniel Wittenberg. The technical producer was Emma Crowe. The assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
