Is it or is it not a party? It seems the disease of not knowing when one is or is not at a party has spread from Prince Andrew to other members of the British establishment.

Correspondent Rosie Holt tries to get to the bottom of this perplexing issue.

As the UK puts more countries on its Red and Amber lists, only damp, bleak places remain as possible holiday destinations.

“My wife and I have been working really hard and our daughter will be taking her GCSEs next year – we just all need a little break, just for a week or two,” said Simon.

“But with travel options increasingly limited, everywhere in the UK has been booked up for the summer. Well, everywhere except Swansea, which is understandable.

“And the Green list of countries now appears to be down to Australia – which we can’t really afford – and the Falkland Islands.
