The Joint Expeditionary Force alliance, which includes Finland and Sweden, will also be taking part. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the purpose behind the exercises is to demonstrate how the British Army...

    The socialised healtchare system in England failed to meet its own cancer waiting time target in 98 per cent of areas, analysis has revealed.

    Scientists at a laboratory in England have shattered the record for the amount of energy produced during a controlled, sustained fusion reaction. The production of 59 megajoules of energy over five seconds at the Joint European Torus – or JET – experiment in England has been called "a breakthrough" by some news outlets and caused quite a lot of excitement among physicists. But a common line regarding fusion electricity production is that it is "always 20 years away." We are a nuclear physicist and a nuclear engineer who study how to develop controlled nuclear fusion for the purpose of generating...

    Men are reportedly being asked whether they are pregnant before being given radiotherapy. Cancer patients and those having X-rays and MRI scans are being asked the question, even if they are not women because the word 'female' has been replaced by 'individuals' for medical procedures. In Liverpool, the Walton Centre NHS Trust now asks 'all patients under the age of 60, regardless of how you may identify your gender' whether they could be having a baby. It is understood to be one of a handful of trusts to have expanded the questioning despite it not being a national policy at...

    The UK is considering sending Starstreak missiles to Ukraine as it increases its support following Russia’s invasion. Ben Wallace, the Defence Secretary, described how Vladimir Putin’s invading army was inflicting “horrific devastation” on civilian areas.

But what are the Starstreak missiles which could form part of the next consigments to Ukraine? Here’s everything you need to know. What are Starstreak missiles?

    A video posted on Chinese microblogging website Weibo by the Russian embassy of a party held today to celebrate the 160th anniversary of Vladivostok sparked online outrage with Chinese diplomats, journalists and users referring to the city by its old name ‘Haishenwai’.

    The legal requirement to self-isolate after catching Covid in England is expected to be dropped from next week - as part of a "living with Covid" plan. All remaining virus restrictions in the country are set to end in the coming days, Downing Street said. Currently, positive or symptomatic people must isolate for up to 10 days. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the vaccine had changed the outlook, but Labour warned against "declaring victory before the war is over". Some scientists and charities helping vulnerable people have also expressed concern at plans to lift restrictions while Covid infections are widespread....

    Britain yesterday approved Novavax’s two-dose Covid-19 vaccine for use in adults, bringing a fifth coronavirus shot to the country amid the rapid spread of the Omicron variant that has led to a spike in cases. The vaccine, Nuvaxovid, was approved for use in Britons aged 18 years and older as it met the required safety, quality and effectiveness standards, the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said in a statement. The British approval comes days after the drugmaker filed for US authorisation of the vaccine following months of struggles with development and manufacturing problems, and follows a European...

The data accounts for the period from January 1 to October 31, 2021. The ONS tabulated “Monthly...
