HEALTH: A quarter of strokes happen in younger people like the BBC's Andrew Marr, but new research suggests tea and other small pleasures may help cut the risk for all age groups.

BOOKS: As actress Reece Witherspoon prepares to star in the true story of a woman who embarks on a gruelling solo 1,100-mile hike through the wilds of America, real-life heroine Cheryl Strayed reveals how a terrible grief fuelled the challenge. Her book, Wild, charts her journey from the Mojave Desert to Washington state, during which she faced rattlesnakes, black bears and the threat of mountain lions, in the hope it would help piece her life back together.
