Body Image has been a hot topic recently as the dieting industry has come under scrutiny for false advertising, as well as the recent controversy with the use of industrial materials for breast implants.  Carina Nava Johnson further investigates whether Londoners are body confident.  

Residents of Hackney, one of London's most deprived boroughs, have implemented a new exercise regime in their community to encourage a healthier lifestyle.  Paralympic swimmer Dervis Konuralp shows us what this will mean for Hackney.
