It may be a good time to bury controversial news or push through something a bit outrageous while the world is focused on Covid19

A community whose freehold land is owned by the Prince of Wales has complained about huge rent increases and an inability to buy their own land.

The Duchy of Cornwall, which last year made £21m profit, owns and leases land on the Isles of Scilly.

In recent years, some leaseholders have seen annual rent put up from less than £100 to over £7,000 by what one former MP called a "money-making machine".

The Duchy said it set its fees following a "statutory formula".

It said it did not sell freehold land to protect the islands' "unique character".
