VIDEO Punchline Talks: Friday Briefing, April 16

The royal funeral, the reopening of shops and a legal dispute over a caterpillar cake - there has been plenty of news stories for our Friday panel of business experts to discuss.

Each week, Punchline-Gloucester editor Mark Owen is joined by a selection of Gloucestershire's leading business figures to run the rule over the headlines which caught their eyes in the papers and on Punchline - and the stories behind them.

Taking their places on the panel this week are:

Among the issues discussed are Prince Philip's Land Rover hearse, global water concerns, the rise in job vacancies and good news on the economy's growth, tackling NHS waiting lists, fat finger trading, Covid passports, garlic-breath social distancing - and caterpillar cake wars.

The panel also discusses the issues facing their sectors and the stories which caught their eye in Punchline this week.
