Owners of micro-wedding venue claim their business has been ‘saved’ by new Covid-19 restrictions

Boris Johnson’s decision to slash the number of people allowed at weddings from 30 to 15 amid the Covid-19 pandemic was a devastating blow for thousands of couples and venues around Britain. 

But for one family, the ruling gave their intimate wedding venue business the much-needed boost they had been hoping for.

Former NHS manager Joanna Szczepura and husband Matthew, a former IT manager for JP Morgan, bought Grade Two listed Brickhouse in sleepy Mamhead, Devon in 2015.

Hidden away in the hills with its own three-acre vineyard, the couple initially hoped to make a living selling their home-grown wine to local bars and restaurants.

Malta Retracts Its Claim On The Shark Tooth Gifted To Prince George By Attenborough

Malta has retracted its claim on the prehistoric shark tooth given to Prince George by Sir David Attenborough at Kensington Palace last week. The legendary broadcaster presented the giant tooth to the young royal during a private viewing of his latest Netflix documentary, A Life on Our Planet, which was screened in the gardens to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children. However, on seeing the official pictures which were shared on Instagram by @kensigntonroyal, Maltese culture minister José Herrera suggested Malta might like the tooth back.
