Climate change activist Greta Thunberg has set sail to cross the Atlantic in a carbon-neutral yacht.

The 16-year-old has been invited to attend UN summits on global warming in New York and Chile.

Before she set off from Plymouth, Greta admitted the voyage would be "challenging for everyone on the boat", adding "that is what you have to expect".

The trip on the high-tech racing yacht Malizia II will take around two weeks, and the vessel itself has no refrigerator, kitchen or toilet.
