Prince Charles calls for greater EU efforts on climate change
Prince Charles urged the European Union Thursday to show even greater leadership in the fight against global warming as the "doomsday clock of climate change" ticks down.
In a speech to members of the European Parliament in Brussels, the prince urged the EU to strive to unite the public and private sectors and non-governmental organisations to help save the world's rain forests.

Calls for apologies at Diana inquest
The coroner in the Princess Diana inquest has demanded to know why a security chief has not apologised. John Macnamara, Mohamed al Fayed's director of security in August 1997, wrongly branded former bodyguard Trevor Rees, formerly known as Rees Jones, as a "mouthpiece" of the security services, the court heard. The claim appears in Mr Macnamara's sworn statement to Operation Paget, the investigation into allegations that Diana and Dodi were murdered.

Shopping Tsar To Tackle Superstores
There has been a mixed reaction to a call for an independent ombudsman to oversee supermarkets. The Competition Commission wants a new, stronger code of practice for the grocery supply chain which will be enforced by the new watchdog. Proposals also include a "competition test" for planning decisions involving new, large grocery stores.
A new Groceries Supply Code of Practice would replace the existing code, extending it to all UK grocery retailers with a turnover greater than £1bn.

Lack of kit blamed for UK soldier's death
A British soldier died after being sent into combat in Afghanistan with a lack of basic equipment, a coroner said on Friday. Captain James Philippson of 7 Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery was shot in the head in a gunfight with the Taliban in June 2006. The 29-year-old from Hertfordshire was the first casualty after troops were deployed to the violent southern province of Helmand, where the Taliban remains strong.

Families to get cash for 'behaving'
Jobless families could get "benefits bonuses" for finding work, making their kids behave or by living healthily under radical plans. Based on a US scheme - where New York families can claim up to £3,000 annually for three years - the payments would be handed to deprived parents for meeting a range of good citizenship targets. This could also mean payments for ensuring children attend school and visit the dentist regularly as well as windfalls for attending parents' evenings and helping out at schools.
