Second H5N1 case found in turkeys - Government stakes claim to climate leadership - UK could set 80 per cent carbon target - Plaid MPs told to repay ad spending - Army chief warns over troop morale.



Second H5N1 case found in turkeys
A second case of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu has been found in turkeys in a farm on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said.
The farm was one of four where culls were taking place because of fears of "dangerous contact" with the initial case at Redgrave Park Farm, discovered last week.

Government stakes claim to climate leadership
Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Monday promised the government would take tough measures to fight the climate crisis and urged other world leaders to follow suit.
Two weeks before a meeting of U.N. environment ministers on the Indonesian island of Bali to try to start urgent talks on finding a replacement to the Kyoto Protocol on cutting carbon emissions, Brown said concerted action was crucial.

UK could set 80 per cent carbon target
Britain could commit to cutting carbon emissions by 80 per cent by 2050, Gordon Brown has indicated.
Giving his first major speech on the environment as prime minister, Brown said the target could rise from the current aim of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 60 per cent by 2050.

Plaid MPs told to repay ad spending
Three Plaid Cymru MPs have been found guilty of misusing a parliamentary allowance.
The parliamentary standards commissioner announced on Monday that Elfyn Llwyd, Adam Price and Hywel Williams used their communications allowance to pay for double-page adverts in local newspapers in the week before the Welsh assembly elections in May.

Army chief warns over troop morale
The head of the army, General Sir Richard Dannatt, has expressed concern over troops' morale and the strain placed on resources by operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
His comments came in an internal report leaked to the Sunday Telegraph, in which the chief of the general staff said troops felt "devalued, angry" and were "suffering from fatigue".
