Foie gras a faux pas, says Prince Charles - BP increases reserves, confident on output - More abuse allegations emerge in Jersey - Anti-airport demo on parliament roof ends - New claim go-ahead for gambler.

Foie gras a faux pas, says Prince Charles
Prince Charles has banned the use of foie gras at his official residences for "personal reasons", a royal official told AFP Wednesday. "We can confirm that the Prince of Wales does have a policy that his chefs do not purchase foie gras," a spokeswoman for his official London residence, Clarence House, said. "But that is a long-standing policy, for personal reasons." Britain bans the production of foie gras -- a liver pate made by the force-feeding of ducks and geese -- but still allows it to be imported.
A number of newspapers said the prince has promised to review the royal warrant given to one of his favourite shops near his country residence at Highgrove, western England, after learning it sold foie gras.

BP increases reserves, confident on output
Energy giant BP, ranked third in the world, said Wednesday it now had the reserves to be able to pump four million barrels of oil a day through to 2020 even if it made no new discoveries. BP said that last year it replaced production by 112 percent -- meaning it acquired more in oil reserves than it pumped out -- to take its proved reserves of oil and gas to 17.8 billion barrels.
The company, in a statement on a briefing given to analysts on its annual strategy, also said it added 2.4 billion new barrels to its non-proved reserves, which as a result now totalled 42.1 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

More abuse allegations emerge in Jersey
Police have broken into a bricked-up room in a Jersey children's home where human remains were found.
Detectives are looking for more evidence of crimes against children after discovering a youngster's skull at the Haut de la Garenne home at the weekend. More than 160 people have called police alleging they were victims of child abuse at the centre, it has emerged. Jersey deputy police chief Lenny Harper said some children who lived at the home have not been accounted for.

Anti-airport demo on parliament roof ends
Demonstrators opposing the expansion of Heathrow airport climbed on to the roof of the Houses of Parliament and stayed there for three hours Wednesday, just days after a similar protest on a jet at the airport.
Five activists from campaign group Plane Stupid draped two banners over the roof, one saying "No Third Runway", and the other, referring to airport operator BAA, reading "BAA Headquarters", an AFP photographer at the scene said.

New claim go-ahead for gambler
A compulsive gambler who lost more than £2 million has been given permission by a judge to seek "personal injury" damages from bookmaker William Hill as well as his losses.
Graham Calvert, a 28-year-old greyhound trainer, is claiming the bookmaker allowed him to carry on betting after he asked them to stop taking his money under the bookies' own self-exclusion policy.

His claim originally sought to get back just his losses to William Hill.
