What could Boris Johnson's Brexit deal mean for food, farming, fishing and the environment? An expert - Dr Steven McCabe, associate professor at the Centre for Brexit Studies at Birmingham City University - gives us his analysis.

As part of our tour around all the main party conferences we hear from The Brexit Party. It hasn't actually held a conference. It's putting on a series of meetings all round the country. We ask farmer and prospective parliamentary candidate for The Brexit Party in North Devon, Dawn Westcott, about her policies and what she makes of the deal.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has been visiting a touring cafe which brings farmers together and makes them fell less isolated. We join him on the Butty Van, a community project in Herefordshire and Shropshire .

As part of our week-long look at rural services, we talk about rural public transport. The campaign group the Rural Services Network describes it as 'on its knees' with services virtually non-existent in many deep rural areas. Dr Gary Bosworth from Lincoln University says new technology, like aps to book a bus, could be a solution. Show less
