The prime minister said new tests could change how people live.
Nicola Sturgeon's husband has told a Holyrood inquiry he knew his wife was meeting Alex Salmond in their home about "something serious" but never asked what. Peter Murrell, who is also the SNP's chief executive, said he was aware of meetings between his wife and Mr Salmond in April and July 2018, shortly before sexual misconduct allegations became public. But he said Ms Sturgeon told him she could not discuss the details and he accepted this as the "nature of Nicola’s job means that when she tells me she can’t discuss something, I don’t press it." Mr Murrell insisted he only found out about the allegations in August 2018 when they were reported in the media, despite Ms Sturgeon having known about them for at least four months. He also told the inquiry he was unaware of any instances where a Scottish Government minister had used their SNP email addresses for communicating instead of their government accounts, despite his wife using a party email for out-of-hours work for years. In addition, Mr Murrell said he had "no direct knowledge of" how the complaints against Mr Salmond were handled by the Scottish Government or the former First Minister's successful judicial review, when the country's highest civil court found the investigation was unlawful.

Heathrow boss John Holland-Kaye is urging the Government to fast-track a Covid-19 test which gives results in 20 seconds. It comes after the Prime Minister announced plans for mass testing under so-called Operation Moonshot, in which millions of people could be tested every day so they could "behave in a way that was exactly as in the world before Covid". The new Virolens test, which is said to provide results in 20 seconds, launched on Wednesday following a three-week trial at Heathrow Airport. The test has been developed by British start-up company iAbra and is about to embark on clinical trials in order for it to be certified for medical use. The company said the test does not need to be administered by healthcare professionals and is repeatable, with each screening device capable of carrying out hundreds of tests per day. The current gold standard polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests that are conducted in labs use swabs and need to be processed at different temperatures meaning it takes longer to get results.
The European Union is considering legal action against the UK after Boris Johnson pressed ahead with plans to override parts of the Withdrawal Agreement. The bloc believes it may be able to mount a challenge before the Government manages to pass legislation which changes part of the deal struck last year relating to Northern Ireland, which ministers admit does breach international law in a "very specific and limited way." According to Bloomberg, a draft working paper prepared by Brussels and circulated to member states warns that the UK Internal Market Bill represents a “clear breach” of the agreement which would “open the way to legal remedies”. It adds that once the transition period ends, the EU could also trigger the dispute settlement mechanism contained in the deal, which could ultimately result in the UK being hit with financial sanctions. It came as the EU called for emergency talks to salvage the Brexit negotiations. The talks will take place on Thursday.
