Jon Holmes welcomed Mark to his show to review the papers.

But this isn't just any old paper review, it's a Diversity Paper Review. And boy is Mark diverse. After all, he describes himself as "brown".

The first piece of news in his review was Hertfordshire being named as the best place to raise a family by uSwitch. However the Isle of Wight is ranked in the bottom 10 areas to live. Mark and Jon reflected on the good times they'd had there.

Radio presenter Jeremy Vine has released a video where a car driver got rather angry with him for cycling. Mark revealed he feels sorry for the woman, as she doesn't have the to explain her side of the story in front of millions of people. 

Finally he revealed Brian May has come out in defence of badgers, as the government has announced an extension to the badger cull. Reviewer Mark explained his love for badgers and said it's just hearsay that they carry TB. Jon then revealed the band Hear'Say had also been culled, which was news to us. We'll look into it and bring you a story if anything comes of it.
