The UK's climate change watchdog says agriculture is making 'glacial' progress towards Net Zero targets. But who is to blame? Farmers or the government?
On the markets, we look at the impact of rising inflation on the food shop.
It's the UK's worst bird flu season so far – we speak to the scientists embarking on a new research drive to tackle the virus.
