If you have a wedding to plan imminently, no doubt you'll have reached for our special marriage magazine, free with today's paper. If you've got to the frustrating stage of list-making and and adding up how much it all may cost, you might be already having a re-think.

In "Spare me the lectures from celebs" (18 August), Tanya Gold said: "The Carbon Trust pointed out that Travolta's carbon footprint is 100 times that of the average Briton."

The longer that Bowman's show goes on the less I like it, so it's fortunate that it has started from a position of relative strength.

Barely a week goes by in Britain without a protest about some threat to our countryside. But public opposition to the despoliation of the waters which surround these islands has always been considerably scarcer. For too long, "under the sea" has meant "out of mind". The publication of a draft Marine Bill yesterday, after three years of waiting, is a hopeful sign that this oversight is finally going to be corrected.

The British public plans to fork out more than £13bn to make their homes greener in 2008, with over two-thirds claiming they have already taken steps to reduce their carbon footprint in the past year, the Co-operative Bank has found.

England's visit could not be more crucial for Steve McClaren's fledgling regime but it will be played out under the spectre of racism after the Croatia football federation's head of security admitted yesterday that he could not guarantee the behaviour of the home supporters. European football's governing body, Uefa, has also told Croatia that they are "on a warning" and could face serious measures if they reoffend.
