BBC News: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Husband speaks after six days of hunger strike

Richard Ratcliffe’s voice is barely a whisper, the skin on his face is cracked and red, and, on a sunny day in June, his handshake feels unnaturally cold.

It is almost a week since Mr Ratcliffe went on hunger strike in protest at the ongoing detention of his wife, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, in Iran.

During that time, he has been sleeping in a tent outside the Iranian embassy.

The last food he ate was peach and yoghurt on Saturday morning.

Since then, all that has passed his lips is water and mint tea, he says, and the effects are showing.

“I’m more tired, I get slow-witted,” he says. “My voice has got quieter and I get more bad-tempered.”

Eight people were killed with a van and knives in the 2017 London attack.

In the space of three minutes the attackers struck Xavier Thomas, 45, and Christine Archibald, 30, with a van on the bridge, before fatally stabbing Alexandre Pigeard, 26, Sara Zelenak, 21, Kirsty Boden, 28, Sebastien Belanger, 36, James McMullan, 32, and Ignacio Echeverria, 39, around Borough Market.

BBC News: Climate activism failing to represent BAME groups, say campaigners

The mother of Ella Kissi-Debrah – the nine-year-old girl whose fatal asthma attack may have been linked to illegal levels of pollution – has said there is a lack of representation in climate activism.

People living in parts of London with high proportions of black, mixed or other ethnic groups are disproportionately affected by air pollution compared to those in areas with a high proportion of white people, according to research by the Mayor of London.

Yet people from BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) backgrounds are often invisible in climate protest, says Rosamund Kissi-Debrah – who is due to speak at the World Health Organization on Monday.

The Guardian: Britain to sizzle on hottest day of the year on Sunday

Met Office says temperature in parts of Britain will exceed 23C, making it warmer than south of France this weekend

Britons are expected to bask in the hottest day of the year so far this weekend, with temperatures in some parts likely to be higher than in the south of France.

The heat is anticipated to rise on Saturday, peaking at 18-19C (64-66F) in north-west Wales and central England.

The Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said: “It is likely on Sunday we will see further sunshine for many parts of the UK. In the sunshine across England and Wales we will see temperatures above average for this time of year, above 18C or 19C. In south-east England we could see highs of around 23C.

“It will be a lovely weekend for much of England and Wales, but in Northern Ireland and Scotland it will turn a bit cloudier.”

Public Health England advised people to protect themselves from harmful UV rays.

Prof John O’Hagan, head of the PHE’s Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, said: “It’s worth remembering that at this time of the year UV can be as strong as it is in August. Many of us won’t yet be acclimatised to that and so may burn more quickly than usual.

“If you’re going outside for a prolonged period, think how the sun affects you and what you can do to make sure you do not get burned.”

The warm weekend will dissolve back to average temperatures on Monday morning.
