Greta Thunberg speaking in Govan, a giant dinosaur hanging around the Barras, a 20-car motorcade driving through the city centre – it’s fair to say today was not quite a normal day in Glasgow.
The second day of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow saw world leaders arriving in the city, as discussions on how the world tackles the climate crisis stepped up.
Here are some highlights from day two of COP26.

2. COP26 - Day two
PETA supporters in giant blow-up dinosaur costumes followed US President Joe Biden, carrying signs that read, 'Biden: Don’t Appoint Another NIH Dinosaur'. PETA wants the new head of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – the largest funder of research in the world - to end the agency’s funding of animal tests and instead invest in state-of-the-art, animal-free research methods.
