Boris Johnson will travel back to London from the Cop26 climate change conference by private jet after lecturing world leaders on the need to cut travel emissions, Downing Street confirmed tonight.

Mr Johnson is due to return to the capital when the leaders' conference section of the summit ends this week.

But after his speech, his spokesman told reporters he would fly back to London using a private charter powered by a special mix of 'sustainable' aviation fuel.

He said it is one of the most carbon-efficient aircraft of its size, while the emissions will also be offset.

He flew into Glasgow on Sunday night after attending the G20 in Rome at the weekend and will fly back to London later this week.
