Documentary maker Stacey Dooley has been criticised for her social media posts about filming in Uganda with Comic Relief.

Dooley shared a picture of herself holding a young Ugandan child on her Instagram account.

British MP David Lammy took exception to Comic Relief's depiction of Africa, saying that "the world does not need any more white saviours".

He added that his comments were "nothing personal" and that Stacey Dooley was well-intentioned.

Aoife Barry and Damien McLoughlin joined Karl Deeter to discuss this and some of the other stories making the news this week.
