СКРИПТ УРОКА

The United States and Cuba have signed a deal restoring commercial flights between the countries for the first time in more than 50 years. The agreement in Havana means there could be more than 100 flights a day within months. But it is still at the moment technically illegal for American citizens to visit Cuba as tourists.

Police in Australia say they've made one of the biggest drug busts in the country’s history. Officers seized around $1bn worth of methamphetamine hidden inside push-up bras in a shipping container from Hong Kong.

A record number of people had cosmetic surgery in the UK last year – more than 50,000 people went under the knife. This, according to data released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. It also shows that for the first time the number of men opting for procedures went up by a greater percentage than the number of women.
