Ayesha Dharker as Shakespeare’s Titania: ‘The forgeries of jealousy’ | Shakespeare Solos ► http://bit.ly/AyeshaSolo

To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, we asked leading actors to perform key speeches from his plays. Here, Ayesha Dharker plays Titania, the queen of the fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Titania has quarrelled with Oberon, king of the fairies. As the pair have control over the weather, their argument leads to a vision of nature’s chaos.

Confessions from A&E: the incredibly itchy back | This is the NHS ► http://bit.ly/ConfessionsItch

Gastroenterology registrar Dr Tareq El Menabawey scratches an itch that a 106 -year-old lady just can’t reach. He was a bumbling young doctor on his third night shift in a row when the rather grand old lady presented at 6am as being ‘confused with back pain’. Thankfully, as it turned out, it wasn’t really an emergency.

Catholic priests' victim: 'The abuse was so common it became normal’ ► http://bit.ly/CatholicVictim

Leslie Turner, a retired primary head teacher, was paid £17,000 in compensation by the Irish Christian Brothers, after claiming two priests from the Catholic Order sexually abused him at school in Sunderland in the 1960s. The church has not accepted liability for the alleged abuse. Turner, now 66, has waived his anonymity in a film for the Guardian to allege he was molested from the age of 12 by two Irish Christian Brother teachers at St Aidan’s Roman Catholic Grammar School in Sunderland between 1961 and 1967. Both priests are long dead, but he sued after being diagnosed with delayed onset post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of what he said he suffered.

The British citizens living in Europe's worst refugee camp ► http://bit.ly/DunkirkCamp

The ‘new jungle’ near Dunkirk is home to 1,500 people, almost all of them Kurds, fleeing war, poverty and persecution in Iraq. Conditions are shocking, and there is little sign of a solution. But among those trying to survive we find two naturalised British citizens who have chosen to live in one of Europe’s only shanty towns because their family members have been denied entry to the UK.

Zika virus: what you need to know | Guardian Explainers ► http://bit.ly/ZikaVirus2016

A rare tropical virus has been spreading rapidly through Latin America prompting health officials to warn pregnant women of the risks to their babies. The virus has been linked by some officials in Brazil to surging cases of microcephaly - a brain defect that leads to reduced head size in infants. However, the virus itself is not thought to be fatal and often comes with no symptoms at all.

The great British booze problem: how a few glasses a day has led to an epidemic for the NHS ► http://bit.ly/GreatBritishBoozeProblem

Derek McBeath, 43, saw himself as a casual drinker – but the two cans of lager he was drinking every night were killing him. The specialists treating him at the Royal Free hospital in Hampstead, north London, say most people with liver disease aren’t alcoholics – they just drink too much. Jenny Kleeman explores how Britain’s drinking habits are burdening the NHS.

They live in some of London’s most exclusive locations, cooking, cleaning and caring for the children of a rich foreign elite. But for many overseas domestic workers, the veneer of reflected glamour conceals a much darker world, one in which they are denied a passport, salary, food and even sleep while working 20-hour days. Unable to sever ties with their employers due to UK visa restrictions, and fearful of deportation or even arrest if they turn to the authorities, their only real source of hope lies with the small but increasingly vocal group of women who help them escape, and are now fighting to secure a change in the law.
