Trump's Helsinki summit with Putin causes outrage in US

This week, Donald Trump rowed back on remarks he made in Helsinki alongside Vladimir Putin after outrage at home. The US president said he "accepted" the conclusion of his intelligence services that Russian meddling had taken place during the 2016 election campaign. He blamed the furore on a grammatical error he made during his speech, but Trump's comments have already turned many in his own party against him.

Also, hundreds of Venezuelan children are being abandoned in neighbouring Colombia. Venezuela's 25,000% inflation rate has left many people penniless. It's left some desperate families with no choice but to flee the country and leave their children behind.

And hundreds of disused wells pockmark the Canadian province of Quebec. These hidden reservoirs of poisonous gases are remnants of over a century of drilling and mining. They pose huge environmental and safety risks and are leaving today's taxpayers with a hefty bill. Our correspondent reports.
