Jonathan Gulliford is the director of sales and marketing at Co-operative Legal Services, which has already launched a pilot scheme, and he told Radio 5 live about the benefits of getting your legal advice from the local supermarket.

This interview replaces an earlier version which included an error in a television graphic.
