Royal baby offered cameo role on Coronation Street
Prince George has been offered a cameo role on one of Britain's most popular soap operas'. Directors at Coronation Street have revealed they want to christen their new set in Salford by featuring the royal baby. John Whiston, the Creative Director of the show, said that this latest revelation continues the "long historical connection" the show has with the Royal family. The royal baby's grandfather, Prince Charles, featured in an episode of Coronation Street in December 2000 to celebrate the programme's 40th anniversary.

Red panda revealed at a Wildlife Park in Scotland
A red panda cub, which was born at a zoo in June, has been unveiled at the Highland Wildlife Park. Named Kush by zookeepers, the cub is the first red panda the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland has had in 13 years, with the panda's parents having been brought to Scotland from wildlife parks across Europe. Red panda genetics demonstrate that the species are more closely related to the raccoons and weasels, rather than being genetically similar to giant pandas.

Rare orchid discovered in Northern Ireland
A rare orchid has been discovered in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in the meadows of a hospital. With the plant being legally protected, it has only been recorded at eight sites in Northern Ireland, making it an extremely rare discovery. Donna Rainey, the staff member that found the Marsh Helleborine, asserted that the presence of the orchid on hospital grounds is a "testimony to the quality of the site" and the "proper management regime" that is in place at the Causeway Hospital.
