* Relations between the Danish police and climate protesters at Copenhagen have remained cordial, but things threatened to boil over at 3am yesterday when 100 officers raided a house being used by the campaign group Climate Justice Action, on Ragnhild Street in the north of the city. Apparently the police thought they were about to uncover a cache of dangerous weapons. Instead, a spokesman admitted later, they discovered "58 fluorescent tubes containing a mixture of paint and oil, closed in both ends with candle wax, 193 riot shields, nine metal cages measuring 4mx2m..." The drowsy campaigners said they also nabbed a power drill, an angle grinder, some wooden props and bicycle tools. Would love to know what they were planning.

If you need a photo taking, where do you go? Mario Testino is busy, passport booths make everyone look like a government anti-crack campaign, and Snappy Snaps can be a bit harsh. My friend went recently, and when she suggested that the results weren’t exactly Holbeinesque, the ‘artiste’ responsible replied sullenly that “the camera never lies”. Then there’s the average makeover studio, where subjects submit to transvestite make-up and a tight perm before being photographed sitting backwards on a chair.

Just south of the purpose-built tackiness of Cancun on Mexico's Caribbean coast is the self-styled Riviera Maya, the hot new beach destination for the Vilebrequin-wearing brigade. At the centre of the buzz is the sprawling, eco-conscious Mayakoba development, which has attracted six luxury hotels to its unique blend of golden sand, jungle and mangrove forests.
