1. Call for Christmas 'solutions'

The leaders of the UK's four nations must agree uniform guidance to allow people to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. That's the message today from the Liberal Democrats and the Alliance Party of Northern Ireland. They want the four governments to agree on numbers allowed for gatherings, an expansion of travel and a system for the return of students for the holidays. Leaders say people must follow the rules now if we're to have a chance of celebrating Christmas in anything like the normal way.

3. Jobs pain 'unequally shared'

Research suggests around one in five young people who were on the furlough scheme have since lost their jobs. The Resolution Foundation said a similar proportion of people from ethnic minority backgrounds have also been made unemployed, compared with 9% for the general population. The think tank says the "true nature" of Britain's jobs crisis is now "starting to reveal itself". The Treasury says its wage support programmes have helped to protect millions of jobs. Furlough will be replaced with the less generous Job Support Scheme next month.

Customers have been left unable to buy basics such as groceries and medicine because so many stores are now refusing to accept cash. Consumer group Which? is asking businesses who've introduced the ban as part of social distancing to show greater understanding and flexibility to customers who may have no other option. Charities say it's often the most vulnerable who are excluded.
