Environment secretary insists Marbles row is 'long resolved'

Environment Secretary Steve Barclay insists the Elgin Marbles row is “long resolved” and does not need to be relitigated.

It comes as Rishi Sunak cancelled a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in London, after he spoke out about the marbles – known as the Parthenon Sculptures – which he wants returned to Athens from the British Museum.
