    EU leaders line up 'no-deal' emergency Brexit summit for November

    A Brexit summit to finalise terms of the political declaration on Britain’s future trade relationship with the EU had been pencilled in for 17-18 November. EU leaders are preparing to hold an extraordinary “no deal” Brexit summit in November to deal with the potential consequences of the UK crashing out of the bloc should Theresa May fail to deliver decisive progress on the Irish border issue this week, the Guardian can reveal. A special meeting of heads of state and government at which the EU had hoped to sign off on the Brexit negotiations next month may instead be turned into a emergency summit to discuss the bloc’s response to a cliff-edge Brexit.

    UK automation picks up as flow of European workers slows ahead of Brexit

    At Muller Precision Engineering's plant in Redditch, south of Birmingham, James Gibbs is in charge of three clattering pieces of machinery older than he is. British manufacturers have long lagged behind their developed country peers on automation, thanks in part to a seemingly inexhaustible pool of workers from Europe. The flow of low-cost labour has become less reliable since Britain voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, however.

    Climate change already causing increases in stress, depression and negative mental health, study shows

    Mental health has already been impacted by events linked to climate change, such as multi-year temperature warming, increased rainfall and extreme weather events, a new study shows. Scientists analysed data from nearly two million US residents who reported the state of their mental health for 30 days with the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention between 2002 and 2012, coupling this with climate data. The sheer scale of the study adds important weight to the growing body of evidence that shows exposure to climate change-related heat worsens mental health and increases suicide rates.

    Stop and search is 'ineffectual and racially unjust', says David Lammy

    Stop and search is an “ineffectual” practice and an “integral cog in a racially disproportionate” criminal justice system, Labour MP David Lammy has said. The politician recalled his own experience of being “ambushed” by police officers at the age of 12, when he was stopped for matching the description of a mugger. Mr Lammy’s comments come after the release of a report which found that black people in England and Wales are almost nine times more likely than white people to be stopped and searched for drugs.
