First to The Guardian this week, and some good news from the Tierpark Zoo in Berlin, which has just seen their resident panda Meng Meng give birth to baby twins – all the more remarkable when pandas are difficult to breed. Read more about the new mum and her babies are doing here.


On BBC News this week, a very moving but uplifting story from Tilbury in Essex. Darren Garwood has written his ill son Jackson as the main character of a picture book telling the tale of a superhero helping tackle climate change. Find out about his inspiration behind it here.


Finally, on this week, to America and to the story of Julie Ashin, a freelance journalist from Oregon who has put disused old school buses to a new lease of life – becoming mobile new homes for those without a roof over their head. See more of her amazing work here.
