Britain's Prince Harry has suggested that the coronavirus pandemic is a rebuke from nature as he called for more action to tackle climate change. Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have spoken out on issues such as race and the environment since stepping down from their roles as working members of the royal family at the end of March and moving to California.
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".

What the new tier system means for getaways The 23 countries you can (feasibly) visit How to get a Covid test for your holiday Can you travel between tiers at Christmas? Sign up to the Telegraph Travel newsletter The Government is under growing pressure to add travel corridors to more long-haul destinations, now people in England can travel once again. Yesterday, the Government lifted its blanket ban advising against all non-essential travel. There is still advice to only travel when necessary, but this is not legally binding. However, much of the world still remains off-limits to British travellers. Almost all of Europe’s top destinations are red-listed, and – notably considering its low case numbers – the vast majority of Africa. Speaking in support of Telegraph Travel’s Unlock Long Haul campaign, Chris McIntyre, MD of tour operator Expert Africa, said: “It’s complete nonsense to advise people against going to, say, Zambia, because of Covid, when their chances of catching it in the UK are hundreds of times higher than their chances in Zambia. “Many countries in Africa rely very heavily on tourism, so this advice is doing immense damage, particularly to some of the poorer, more rural communities around the national parks.” As it stands, there are 33 African countries that British holidaymakers can enter right now. However, there are only two countries (Namibia and Rwanda) with travel corridors, meaning travellers do not need to go into quarantine on their return. Grant Shapps is due to update the nation on the Government’s travel corridors list at 5pm. Follow all today’s travel updates below.
