Starmer’s mission, Sunak’s protocol plan and the Briton captured by Russian forces

Sky News’ political editor Beth Rigby interviews Shaun Pinner – a British national captured by Russian forces whilst fighting alongside Ukranian troops. He was one of five Britons released as part of a prisoner swap last September. He discusses his experiences – from being on the battlefield and watching his Ukrainian home city of Mariupol flattened, to his treatment in detention and the sham trial that followed. The former soldier also called on Britain to give Ukraine the fighter jets requested by President Zelenskyy. Plus, from 41 mins 30 in, Beth and producer Mollie Malone discuss what’s been happening in politics – include a new vision for Labour laid out by Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak’s attempts to for a change on the Northern Ireland protocol.
