Prince Charles has joked that he needed a drink after attending the first day of climate action summit Cop26.

“I think I need it I promise you after today”, he said after accepting a whisky from a waiter at a drinks reception for the event in Glasgow.

The future monarch made a speech on the opening day of the conference urging world leaders to mount “a vast military-style campaign” that will take “trillions, not billions, of dollars” to tackle climate change.
