BERLIN (Reuters) -Health Minister Jens Spahn on Friday defended another U-turn by Germany on the AstraZeneca vaccine, saying making it available to all adults who want it would protect more people against COVID-19 more quickly. Spahn announced late on Thursday that Germany would make AstraZeneca available to all adults, subject to consulting a doctor, and allow people to get a second shot as soon as four weeks after the first. The move comes with an eye to the summer holidays and coincides with the rapid passage of legislation that would free those fully vaccinated from social distancing measures imposed to fight the pandemic.
The British and French standoff on the seas round Jersey is, at first glance, a row over logbooks, lobsters, licences and sea snails. But it is the result of a perfect storm of British, French and European politics and, inevitably, Brexit. The technicalities of fishing licences in the 12 miles around Jersey’s coasts are vitally important for French fishermen. They blockaded Jersey’s main port, after accusing the Channel Island government of not granting enough licences and imposing unfair conditions on them. But such disputes rarely lead to Royal Navy and French navy ships eyeing each other across the waves unless it suits politicians on both sides. So how did it come to this? The UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA), which came into force on December 31 last year, sets out the new post-Brexit fishing rules. Under the deal struck on Christmas Eve, EU boats can continue to operate in UK territorial waters if they can prove historical fishing activity in the area. Access is granted by the issuing of fishing licences but France is angry about how the new rules are being implemented and has accused Britain of dragging its feet.

France is delaying an EU order for 1.8 billion doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine planned for the next two years, a German newspaper said on Friday, citing EU diplomats, but Paris said it backed the contract and was just asking questions. In its report, German daily Die Welt said the reason for Paris' hesitation was unclear, but diplomats had speculated that it might want French companies to play a bigger part in vaccine production. At recent meetings of European Union ministers about vaccine orders, French representatives held up decision-making by posing technical questions and requests for clarifications, Die Welt reported.
Detectives hunting the killer of PCSO Julia James have issued an image of a man they believe could be key to the investigation. Police said they want to speak to the man who is understood to have been in the Aylesham area on Wednesday 28 April 2021 – the day after the 53-year-old mother of two was murdered. In the picture released by police, the man is wearing a black hoodie and carrying a large Nike holdall. He has short curly hair and a stubble under his chin. The image appears to show the man walking through a field. Mrs James was found with severe head injuries at around 4pm on Tuesday 27 April on a footpath next to Akholt Wood in the Snowdown area of Kent.
