Six injured in building collapse - Queen urges action, not talk, to tackle climate change - Diana's driver 'appeared drunk' - Britain battered by 80mph winds - Madame Tussauds snubs waxwork Brown.



Six injured in building collapse
A major investigation is under way after six building workers were injured when an office block under construction collapsed in Belfast. All six workers - two of them Polish - were detained in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast with broken limbs and other injuries. All were said to be in a stable condition. A massive crash was heard when the second storey of the office block, close to the Royal Courts of Justice, collapsed as workers were pouring the concrete which would have provided the floor.

Queen urges action, not talk, to tackle climate change
Queen Elizabeth II made rare comments on the environment as she issued her Commonwealth Day message Monday, calling for more action to meet rhetoric on tackling climate change. The 81-year-old monarch, who heads the 53-nation global body of mainly former British colonies, said countries that pollute the least -- particularly the least-developed nations -- are often the worst affected by climate change. "If we recognise the interests and needs of the people who are most affected, we can work with them to bring about lasting change," she said in a statement issued by the Commonwealth Secretariat in London.

Diana's driver 'appeared drunk'
Driver Henri Paul appeared to be "drunk" before the crash that killed Princess Diana, the inquest into her death has heard. In written evidence, Serge Benhamou, the first paparazzi photographer to be heard at the inquest, also admitted taking pictures of the bodies to the disgust of horrified members of the public. He is among a number of paparazzi who have refused to appear, either by videolink from Paris or in person at the London inquest, and whose police statements are being read out.

Britain battered by 80mph winds
Homes were flooded and hit by power cuts as winds of more than 80mph battered Britain. Forecasters warned of more rough weather to come after gales roared in from the Atlantic. Travellers by sea, air, rail and road faced delays and thousands of homes lost power as trees crashed down on lines. Insurers said the cost of such a storm - the strongest of the winter in southern areas of the country - could run into hundreds of millions of pounds.

Madame Tussauds snubs waxwork Brown
Madame Tussauds is not going to commission a waxwork of Gordon Brown, because he hasn't made enough of an impact as Prime Minister. Bosses at the waxwork museum say there isn't enough public demand for the PM to be immortalised in wax, and they will hold off until after a general election. Meanwhile, they say his predecessor Tony Blair, who stepped down last summer, is still a big draw. Public relations manager Ben Lovett said an election was an acid test of opinion and they would wait until then to make their decision.
