The Canary Islands' president confirmed a man, believed to be a doctor, who had been staying at the H10 Costa Adeje Palace hotel in the south of Tenerife, was being kept in isolation following testing positive.

NHS opens clinic to help child addicts of computer games

It’s an addiction that has been likened to both alcoholism and drug-abuse. Computer game addiction is on the rise - something Lysa Martin knows all too well. She has watched four of her sons succumb to the condition, and doesn’t know where to turn.

Her sons will wake up in the night to play games, become aggressive, and even hyperventilate when their games are taken away. Lysa’s eldest son Romario, says the desire to get to the next level on any given game is what keeps him going. But could help finally be at hand?

Dr Henrietta Bowden-Jones has just founded the first NHS publicly funded gaming addiction clinic.

On the growing need for such clinics, she said: "What we are seeing tends to be teenage boys. One of the most surprising things is the aggression - indeed some violence is manifested in children who have always been kind and considerate to their parents."

And on what she would say to someone who walked through the clinic doors for the first time, she said: "An addiction is a very serious situation. Often an individual has lost control of their behaviour, and is suffering extremely negative consequences, be it on their health, on their emotional or psychological wellbeing, on the financial side if they’re gamblers…. Behavioural addictions can be treated very well, it's talking therapy, we do not use medication."

For further advice and information, call the National Centre for Gaming Disorders on 02073817722.

The IVF postcode lottery denying couples the chance to become parents

Thousands of women as young as 35 are being denied IVF treatment on the NHS - because of the area they live in.

Despite official recommendations that women should be eligible for IVF up to the age of 42 - one-in-nine Clinical Commissioning Groups in England are imposing their own restrictions on fertility treatment.

And, it's having a devastating effect on couples all around the country - including Steph and Tom, who join us alongside fertility expert, Dr Larisa Corda.

Harry and Meghan show anger at palace with new statement

Just six weeks after their controversial decision to 'step back' as senior royals - on Friday, Prince Harry and Megan Markle released a statement outlining their new roles within the monarchy. But, some have accused the couple of using the statement to take a swipe at Buckingham Palace - amid ongoing frustrations over their departure from the Royal Family.

So, what’s really going on behind the palace gates? We're joined by Royal expert, Camilla Tominey.

On the tone of the statement, Camilla said: "It’s pretty pointed. It’s certainly been drafted by an American because there are Americanisms in it. Also, it shows a fundamental lack of understanding of how the monarchy works. Yes Harry and Meghan are high-profile, important figures, but news flash, no royal is bigger than that institution - not even the Queen."

When questioned by Holly whether the couple would ever be allowed a private life, Camilla replied: “When they released this statement, they courted publicity. What did they expect that statement to do?

"My argument would be, if you want a fully independent, private life, and just to be treated like high-profile celebrities effectively, then you have to cut all ties."
