On this evening's BBC Newsline, we look at the increasing problem of childhood obesity.

It is estimated that one in five primary school children are either overweight or obese which can trigger a range of physical, emotional and mental issues. Our health correspondent Marie Louise Connolly has a special report.

And we are live in Dunloy ahead of this weekend's big hurling clash between Antrim and Cork in the All-Ireland Quarter Final.

For those stories and more join us at 1830 BST on BBC One.
