It may be May, but this is the UK, and so there is no reason why it should not snow in the fifth month of the year. Skiers have returned to the slopes in the Lake District for the first time since lockdown, and were "giddy with excitement". But with indoor hospitality still 10 days away in England, snow seems less than ideal for those planning an outdoor pint at their local.

Cutting human sources of methane would be a quick win for the climate, according to a new United Nations report. Roughly halving emissions of the greenhouse gas from human activity, often with existing, cost-effective solutions, would reduce the future rise in global temperatures by around 0.3C by the 2040s, it is claimed. The analysis was carried out by the UN Environment Programme and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). Scientists have hailed the strategy as a "win-win" because it would reduce global warming and simultaneously improve human health and the economy.
