A Cop26 “special programme” was filmed at the Living Rainforest in Berkshire last night (Tuesday) at 6pm.

The tropical rainforest, located in Hampstead Norreys, was a backdrop for the 30-minute-report on the fight against climate change.

The indoor greenhouse hosted ITV Meridan presenters Sangeeta Bhabra, Fred Dinenage and Holly Green as they discussed the “crucial” climate summit, COP26, in Glasgow.

Executive director at the Trust for Sustainable Living Karl Hansen said: “ITV wanted a good location for the opening day of Cop26.

“There was a massive announcement about the global leaders stopping deforestation so it was appropriate really.

Mr Hansen commented on how “wonderful” it is to be a part of bringing the world’s attention to the climate crisis.

“It’s surreal that people are now taking it seriously," he added.

“Now we have to keep leaders to this promise, it is not going to be easy at all.

“It has become a generational thing, the younger generation have said enough is enough."

He added: “It gives us great hope for the future.

“Our role at the Trust for Sustainable Living and the Living Rainforest, is to do everything we can to support and empower young people to make things right.”

There was also a surprise guest appearance from the Living Rainforests “elusive” two-toed sloth called Cinnamon.
