UK correspondent Matt Dathan joins Kathryn to talk about Prime Minister Rishi Sunak rolling-back the government's measures to reduce carbon emissions, including pushing back the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 to 2035.

King Charles and Queen Camilla are in France for a three-day state visit that was postponed in March due to protests. Investigations are continuing at various media organisations after serious sexual allegations were levelled at Russell Brand.
