    When Volkswagen announced it was working on a retro microbus that will be for sale in 2022, people went nuts. After all, it's a classic. Which is why you might want to sit down for the company's most recent news: Soon you'll be able to park the iconic retro style you love in your kitchen, thanks to Volkswagen's partnership with Slovenian kitchen appliance designer Gorenje.   Gorenje The two companies joined forces to create the Gorenje Retro special edition VW Bulli refrigerator. The charming design has a distinct vintage style on the outside, but inside it features some of the most cutting-edge technology on the market. We're talking DynamiCooling, which is an advanced fan system that evenly distributes the temperature throughout the refrigerator, reaching all corners and shelves evenly. Then there's the IonAir technology, which might be our favorite. It enriches cool air with extra negative ions that prevent unpleasant odors from taking over the inside of your appliance (like last night's fish leftovers) and helps food retain the good stuff, like minerals and vitamins, while staying fresh for longer. Genius. However, the worst part of the design is having to pick between the beautiful vintage baby blue or stunning Bordeaux red color options. #lover'sdream

    Ministers should tighten the UK's official climate change target - or face the courts, the government's former chief scientist has said. Prof Sir David King is supporting a legal case forcing ministers to shrink carbon emissions to zero by 2050. He says the current government goal - an 80% emissions cut by the same date - is too weak to protect the climate. Ministers have promised more ambitious climate policies in their forthcoming and long-delayed Clean Growth plan. But Prof King told BBC News the government knew the 80% target cut behind that plan was too weak. Some 18 months ago, Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom promised a 100% emissions reduction to keep the UK on track with its obligations under the 2015 Paris climate deal. But ministers have failed to enshrine that 100% cut within the Climate Change Act. Potential catastrophe "This is crazy," Prof King told the BBC. "The government knows very well what needs to be done - but it isn't doing it. "If it takes legal action to force ministers to behave properly, then so be it - I'll support it." Prof King is backing a preliminary legal action by a tiny group, Plan B, run by former government lawyer Tim Crosland. It argues that Business Secretary Greg Clark is obliged under the act to tighten targets if the science shows it is needed. This is the basis of the case. Mr Crosland has written to Mr Clark and says if there is no satisfactory reply after 14 days, he will take the case to the High Court for judicial review. "The science has clearly hardened since the Climate Change Act was agreed," he said. "If scientists are telling us our current course of emissions potentially takes us to catastrophe, then to stick to the current course is irrational. "The best available science tells us the risks of crossing tipping points rise very sharply between 1.5 and 2C. And that means the UK cutting emissions to zero." Counter-productive? His case would be argued in court by Jonathan Crow, Attorney General to Prince Charles, and a former senior Treasury lawyer. Mr Crosland says his co-claimants are a rabbi "who learned not to ignore a humanitarian crisis"; young people fearing for the future; and a supporter from Mauritius representing island states at risk from rising sea water. Other groups are similarly frustrated with long delays in the government's climate strategy, and some are also considering legal action. There are fears, though, that pushing for a zero emissions strategy when the government cannot yet reach its lower target may be counter-productive. ClientEarth, one of the UK's most successful environment groups over the past decade, has pioneered the use of the courts to deliver environmental policies. Jonathan Church, a climate lawyer with the group, said: "We hope that Plan B's claim will help draw attention to the urgency of the challenge we face and ensure that our government keeps its eye on the goals agreed in Paris. "But targets do not on their own reduce emissions." He added that the focus now should be ensuring that the Climate Change Act fulfils its purpose. The government said it would consider Plan B's letter and respond in due course, adding: "The UK is a global leader on climate change". A spokesperson said the forthcoming Clean Growth plan, which will outline how reduce emissions will be reduced, would be "ambitious and robust... and build on the economic opportunities across the country".

    Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have got engaged, it has been confirmed. After a huge amount of speculation, an official announcement has been published in the Times newspaper. The couple met on the fantasy show in 2012, where they played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. Leslie left the cast two years later while Harington has become one of the show's biggest stars - appearing in all seven series of the popular TV drama. Image captionThe couple's engagement was announced in the Times newspaper They only made their public debut as a couple at last year's Olivier Awards. Harington told L'Uomo Vogue last year it was "easy" to fall in love with Leslie. He said his best ever memory of the show were the three weeks in Iceland when they filmed the second season in 2012. "Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he said. "If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love." Image copyrightGETTY IMAGES Image captionHarington and Leslie appeared on the red carpet at the 2016 Olivier Awards Leslie is currently starring in US television series The Good Fight. Harington will next be seen in the BBC's drama Gunpowder, about the gunpowder plot, before he starts filming the next and final series of Game of Thrones.

    The UK government's "future partnership" paper made a strong case for "a bespoke relationship with Europol" after the UK leaves the European Union. It looked at the scenarios of: no agreement being reached on future cooperation with Europol current cooperation being wound down before a new arrangement was put in place It said: "Consideration would need to be given to ensuring that any ongoing investigations would not be affected in such a way that criminals might escape prosecution or vulnerable individuals might be rendered less safe." And it would be difficult to find anyone in the EU who would disagree with the importance of fighting cross-border crime. EU funding Europol, the European Union's law enforcement organisation, was founded in 1999 and employs more than 1,000 people at a cost of about £100m a year. It is an EU-funded agency, and when the UK completes the Brexit process and no longer pays into the EU budget, it will cease to be a member. The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, used an article in the French newspaper Le Monde to make it clear the UK could not continue to be a member. He said: "The British defence minister will no longer be able to sit at the council of defence ministers, London will leave the European Defence Agency and Europol." Inside Europol Prime Minister Theresa May has previously said she wants the UK to retain its security co-operation with Europol post-Brexit. And a number of countries that are not part of the EU, such as Norway, Switzerland and the US, have operational agreements with Europol that allow access to intelligence. But Europol itself say this does not equate to formal membership, which means these countries do not have a say over operations and decisions. Europol also points out that such agreements take a number of years to negotiate. Image caption Every EU member state, plus 14 other nations, has staff in the Europol headquarters in The Hague One precedent that might act as a future model is Denmark, an EU member but no longer in Europol. In December 2015, Denmark voted in a referendum against more integration of security operations. In May this year it formally left Europol, but an agreement was reached that allowed the Danish police and Europol to continue to share information and analysis. Denmark is able to participate in Europol board meetings, but it has only "observer status" and no decision-making rights. Could a similar agreement be made with the UK? Europol seems to think not. In a statement, it said: "The agreement between both Denmark and Europol is based on the fact that Denmark is a full member of Schengen [group of countries that allow passport-free travel] and has implemented all EU data protection standards. "It therefore allows for a sufficient level of co-operation, including the exchange of operational data and the deployment of liaison officers." Prof Alan Woodward, a British cyber-crime expert and adviser to Europol, said the issue of the UK's future relationship with Europol needed to be resolved sooner rather than later. "I very much hope that a solution is found to allow the UK to remain active participant with Europol - simply because it is in everybody's interest," he said. "Europol is the best organisation to tackle cross-border law enforcement issues, especially in cyber-crime."
