Fantastic stuff on front this morning too, kicking off (pardon the pun) with former Footballers' Wives star and now Corrie cobble-botherer Ben Price on behalf of Cafod and seeing the impact of climate change with his own eyes in Uganda. TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady meanwhile says soaring wage inequality here in the UK should worry us all.
The world over, we are seeing ever more cases of extreme weather, from the recent floods in the UK to wild fires in Australia. With each incident comes the familiar assurances that - this time - the necessary action will be taken to make sure there is no repeat. The reality is we have no choice, as every country faces the fact that climate change - and its impact on the weather - is no longer a distant prediction, but a daily reality. And for the poorest people on the planet, the need to change is not just a matter of saving money, but saving lives.
This Friday night at 9pm, four stars of Coronation Street will appear in Corrie Goes to Kenya, the first of two documentaries on ITV1. The programmes follow Sue Cleaver, Ryan Thomas, Brooke Vincent and Ben Price as they visit Mombasa, where they will use their thespian skills to challenge the misconceptions around HIV/AIDS.
