Hopes have been raised that Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh building, which was gutted by fire on Friday, can be saved as it emerged a new sprinkler system had not yet been fitted as part of the restoration following an earlier blaze. On Sunday, as fire crews used thermal imaging cameras to identify any remaining hotspots, conservation experts argued that a fresh recovery project could build on the detail, skill and knowledge accumulated during the restoration of the treasured Mackintosh Library, which was almost entirely destroyed by fire in May 2014. Disbelief and sympathy has been expressed across the world over the misfortune of the building, considered the masterwork of the art nouveau architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, after it was engulfed in flames for a second time.

A senior Tory has dismissed Theresa May’s pledge that the “Brexit dividend” will pay for extra NHS funding and accused her of treating the public “like fools” over the lack of clear costing announced. In an interview with Andrew Marr, Mrs May referred to an unspecified “sum of money” that would be “available from the European Union”, but was vague about where the rest of the funding and hinted it would come from higher taxation. Commons Health Committee chairwoman Sarah Wollaston branded the “dividend” talk “tosh” and said she was sad to see the Government "slide to populist arguments".
Britain's interior minister, Sajid Javid, said on Sunday that his phone had been stolen by moped-riding thieves several months ago and that he was seeking changes to police rules to help tackle the growing problem.

If someone is afraid of dogs, that person might slowly start to spend more time with them, until their fear subsides. Until now, neuroscientists were unsure of how this process played out in the brain.

Japan's Princess Takamado will arrive in Russia on Monday to watch her national team compete in the soccer World Cup, the Kyodo news agency reported, marking the first visit to Russia by a Japanese royal in over 100 years. Relations between Moscow and Tokyo are currently strained over the roll-out of a U.S. missile system and Moscow's move this year to deploy warplanes to a group of disputed islands north of Japan. The dispute over the islands, which were seized by Soviet forces at the end of World War Two, is so acrimonious that Moscow and Tokyo have not yet signed a peace treaty to mark the end of the war.

J Erik Fyrwald, CEO of Syngenta, also said the technologies to produce more food from less land are vital in halting climate change, but that better targeting will mean farmers around the world will use less pesticide in future.
