  • "The essential part of human life is a healthy planet 🌍.” Sir David Attenborough has warned of the "echoes and implications" in the natural world of everything humans do in the urban world.

He was taking questions from Prince William in front of a packed audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The pair discussed their shared passions for conservation, tackling climate change and Sir David's long broadcasting career.

The 92-year-old was asked what advice he would give people on protecting the planet, he said: "We have to recognise that every breath of air we take, every mouthful of food that we take comes from the natural world, and that if we damage the natural world we damage ourselves." #DavidAttenborough #PrinceWilliam #WorldEconomicForum #davos

  • This WWII memorial has had paint thrown over it by vandals.

The RAF Bomber Command Memorial pays tribute to more than 55,000 personnel who died in its service during the Second World War.

It can be found in London's Green Park and was unveiled by the Queen in 2012, but it's been repeatedly vandalised.

David Murray, head of the RAF Benevolent Fund Charity, said: "This is the worst example of vandalism we have seen at the memorial and it is utterly heartbreaking to see the memory of all those brave airmen disrespected in this way." #Memorial #SecondWorldWar #RAFBomberCommandMemorial #WWII

  • 🇺🇸 “I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed”🇺🇸.
It has been ten years since Barack Obama shook the world and was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States.

Obama rewrote the history books by becoming the first African-American elected to take office.

With a charming smile and a message of hope, the Senator from Illinois won the race to the White House ahead of Republican Senator John McCain.

  • Super blood wolf moon makes early morning appearance 🐺 🌕

Britons has to get up early to see one of the most spectacular astronomic events of the year - a “super blood wolf moon”. Because the moon turns red, lunar eclipses are popularly known as “blood moons”. A wolf moon is the traditional name for the full moon in January in Native American folklore, and so this moon is being referred to as a super blood wolf moon.

  • Police have spoken to the Duke of Edinburgh after he was pictured driving without a seatbelt just 48 hours after his car crash.

Prince Philip was behind the wheel of a Land Rover Freelander on the Queen's Sandringham estate.

It comes after the 97-year-old duke was pulled from his wrecked Freelander on Thursday after it flipped on its side following a collision with a Kia.

Two women inside the Kia were hurt in the collision but a nine-month-old boy in the vehicle was unharmed, police said.

Philip - who passed a breathalyser test after the crash - passed a police eyesight test on Saturday, a source told the Press Association.

The crash happened on Thursday as Philip's Freelander pulled out of a side road on to a stretch of the A149 which was earmarked by the local authority for possible safety measures. #royal #princephillip #royalfamily #queen
