Britain has lowered its demands for a greater share of the catch in UK waters after Brexit, Michel Barnier said on Wednesday as he fought back against a rare rebuke from EU governments. Mr Barnier said the UK had signalled that it could accept 60 per cent of the value of stocks from British seas from January 1, down from the 80 per cent London had originally called for. He made the revelation in a meeting with EU ambassadors, after being forced into a rare defence of his negotiating strategy by EU member states. Mr Barnier had offered to return up to 18 per cent of the value of stocks caught in the Channel, Irish Sea and north-east Atlantic, which was rejected. Negotiators are tackling the complicated issue of the more than 100 shared fish stocks as the talks enter what diplomats have called "a make or break phase".

Mass coronavirus testing in Liverpool has missed half of positive cases, Government figures show, as scientists warned that plans for 'moonshot' testing could lead to many infected people believing they do not have the disease. Community testing will soon be available for all local authorities in Tier 3 and the Government has suggested people could be allowed to visit pubs and meet friends if they test negative twice. The mass testing programme, known as ‘Operation Moonshot’, uses lateral flow devices (LFDs). These are similar to pregnancy tests and give quick results, unlike usual polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests which are sent to a laboratory. However, results published by the Government this week from a pilot scheme in Liverpool show that compared to PCR tests, LFDs picked up just five out of 10 positive cases. It means half of people who had coronavirus would wrongly believe they did not have the disease – and would be allowed to mingle in the community. Jon Deeks, Professor of biostatistics at the University of Birmingham, called for an immediate halt to the 'moonshot' plan saying it put people at risk and was not fit for purpose. “It is totally unsafe to use these tests to decide somebody does not have Covid nor ‘infectious’ he said, and sent a direct Tweet to the Health Secretary Matt Hancock and to Prime Minister Boris Johnson calling for lateral flow testing to be halted. He added: “If it were a drug, surely this would warrant an immediate withdrawal from use.”
