Over-16s in the UK will finally be able to get vaccinated – but they might have to wait weeks until their first jab, regulators have decided. Downing Street is set to follow advice from its independent advisory board, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), to make another age bracket eligible for the jab. Up to this point, the vaccine was only available to over 18s, and those aged 12 and over with underlying health conditions or who live with immunosuppressed individuals. The JCVI previously advised against vaccinating most children under 18 until more data on the safety of the jab was available. Now, the specialists have recommended rolling the vaccines out to healthy 16 and 17-year-olds. When can 16 and 17-year-olds get their jab? This new phase of the rollout will…
Love Island has set itself a new Ofcom complaints record after its controversial Casa Amor week. Between 27 July and 2 August, the TV watchdog received over 5,000 complaints about the ITV2 reality show, most of them accusing the series of causing “unnecessary distress” to the contestants. According to Metro, the majority of the 4,330 complaints Ofcom received about the 28 July episode related to the postcard that was sent back to the original girls in the main villa, showing what the boys were alleged to have been up to in Casa Amor. Viewers said it was “misleading and caused unnecessary distress”, especially as it had unfairly suggested that Teddy Soares had cheated on Faye Winter with Clarisse Juliette. Producers chose to show the girls a photo of him and Clarisse kissing, upsetting…
Line Of Duty fans may be waiting patiently for news of another series, but it seems you should think twice before asking creator Jed Mercurio about it. That’s a lesson a journalist from The i learned the hard way after daring to enquire about a follow-up to the hugely popular BBC cop drama. Jed was interviewed by the paper about his new graphic novel when chat naturally turned to the most talked-about show of the year, which aired its series six finale back in May. However, according to the paper, he was left “furious” when the journalist asked about a possible series seven. “It just feels like this is clickbait now,” Jed said, with The i describing him as having “snapped”. After the journalist explained it was a fair question to ask, given the finale drew over 15 million viewers, he…
Children who have caught Covid-19 rarely experience long-term symptoms and usually recover within a week, research has found. Some children may experience long-lasting Covid illness, known as “long Covid,” but parents should be assured that this is a small number of children, said scientists at King’s College London. The peer-reviewed study, published in The Lancet Child and Adolescent Health journal, looked at how Covid affected children and how it compared to other respiratory diseases. It used data given by parents or carers to the UK Zoe Covid Study app. The study looked at 1,734 children, aged between five and 17, who developed symptoms and tested positive for Covid between September 2020 and February 2021. The study found that children are far less at risk of coronavirus than adul…
While many of us can demolish a packet of biscuits or big bag of Maltesers with it barely registering (share-a-bag? I don’t think so), not so Jennifer Aniston. The Friends star has revealed seriously enviable levels of self-control when it comes to snacking, admitting that just a taster is enough to satiate any craving. And by taster, we’re talking a solitary crisp. Or a single M&M. The actor told InStyle magazine that when she’s stressed, that’s all she needs. “A chip. Crunch, crunch, crunch,” she said. “Usually. I’m good at that. I can have one M&M, one chip. I know, that’s so annoying.” We love you Jen, but well, yes. And you won’t find the Rachel Green actor throwing back every single multi-coloured cocktail on the menu either. “When someone asks, ‘Would you like a cranberry-coconut-…
Skateboarder Misugu Okamoto of Japan finished short of a medal when she fell on her last run in the park finals at the Tokyo Olympics.

Beirut was hit by a sudden blast on August 4 last year when ammonium nitrate stores exploded. More than 200 people were killed and 7,500 more were injured in the explosion – it was so strong, it even blew out building windows up to five miles away. It was also heard in Cyprus, more than 150 miles away from the site of the explosion in the Port of Beirut. It triggered a crisis of confidence in the Lebanese government, as the 2,750 tonnes of explosive cargo had been stored without proper safety measures for six years. The exact trigger of the blast remains under investigation but most of the Lebanese public pointed the blame towards the government. A wave of mass protests broke out against the supposed corruption of the administration while the government announced a two-week state of emerg…
It’s always ‘binmen’ isn’t it? And never ‘binwoman’ or ‘bin person’? Well, the rubbish industry is hoping that will change. With a 15% vacancy rate in waste and refuge departments, the sector is calling on mums and veterans to plug the gap and help ensure everyone’s rubbish is picked up on time. One of the largest refuse collection companies in the country, Veolia UK, is specifically encouraging women and older people to join them as refuse lorry drivers to break the “binman” gender stereotype. In the past year, Veolia has seen the the number of unfilled driver jobs increase by 40%. Post-Brexit, immigration, the pandemic and an increased demand for deliveries has seen a shortage of HGV drivers, which has caused major disruption to refuse collection. The shortage of drivers may explain why…
Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta — there have been four Covid-19 variants of concern that have altered the course of the pandemic at different points in the past year and a half. First came the Alpha variant, first detected in the Kent, UK, that was more transmissible and caused the surges behind the winter wave of the pandemic. The Beta variant came next, triggering outbreaks in South Africa, along with Gamma, the variant that took hold of Brazil in January. Now we have Delta ― definitely more transmissible, potentially more virulent (though it’s hard to know for sure), and a huge problem for those who remain unvaccinated. Every day brings new concerning headlines about this variant or that mutation, which brings up the natural question: What’s next? How SARS-CoV-2 has been evolving To bett…
Barack Obama’s massive birthday bash is off. The former president had planned to celebrate his 60th with a big party involving hundreds of guests – reportedly including Hollywood A-lister George Clooney and talkshow legend Oprah Winfrey – at his estate on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, this weekend. But the shindig has now been “significantly” scaled back for only family and close friends “due to the new spread of the delta variant over the past week,” Obama’s spokesperson Hannah Hankins said in a statement Wednesday. “He’s appreciative of others sending their birthday wishes from afar and looks forward to seeing people soon,” Hankins added. Obama turns 60 on Wednesday. He’d drawn ire for planning the now-nixed party – for which guests had to be fully vaccinated and present negative te…
