Starbucks trials recyclable cups in move to tackle landfill waste

The cup, invented by entrepreneur and engineer Martin Myerscough, aims to reduce the environmental impact of the 2.5bn paper coffee cups used in the UK each year. Earlier this year it emerged that only one in 400 were recycled and the rest sent to landfill or incineration. This led to calls for a ban, an idea the government rejected.

Top secret pages of 9/11 report released to public

Today, after pressure from former members of Congress - many of whom spoke out on 60 Minutes in April - and relatives of victims, the pages have been released to the public. Former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, who helped write the 9/11 report and read the redacted pages, told correspondent Steve Kroft in April, the pages could reveal a "substantial" Saudi support network for the 9/11 hijackers while they were in the U.S.
