A dosing error during clinical trials led to the Oxford vaccine reaching 90 per cent efficacy by accident, it has emerged. In the spring, scientists were left baffled as to why participants were experiencing much milder side effects than expected. When they checked, they found participants had received just half the dose given to 500 adults in earlier safety trials. Instead of restarting the trial, researchers at Oxford University boosted the initial participants with a full dose while everyone who enrolled later received the full amount. Trial results announced on Monday show that the 'correct' vaccine dose achieved just 62 per cent efficacy while the 'accidental' arm was 90 per cent effective. Sir Menelas Nicolas Pangalos, executive vice president of biopharmaceuticals research and development at AstraZeneca, the vaccine manufacturer, said: “The reason we had the half-dose is serendipity. “We went back and checked ... and we found out that they had underpredicted the dose of the vaccine by half.” Once informed, regulators allowed the trial of more than 20,000 volunteers to continue – leading to results which were on Monday evening hailed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as "incredibly exciting news".

Just as we've gleaned from the latest American Horror Story: 1984, sometimes the things worth looking forward to are actually a nod to the past. This sentiment rings especially true for the haircut trends you'll see everywhere come 2021, which are going to be decidedly retro, according to the pros. "History tends to repeat itself, as do hairstyles, and this year, we're seeing a lot of textured waves and choppy layers," Brad Mondo, hairstylist and founder of Xmondo Hair, told POPSUGAR. "Most of the haircuts we see will be straight out of the 70s." Besides nostalgia, the common denominator in each of the cuts to come out of lockdown is ease. "Looks that are easy to style are what you will be seeing for the rest of the year and moving onto next year," said hairstylist Michelle Cleveland of Hair Addict Salon. "These are appealing to people right now because most of us are still stuck in our homes and are becoming more relaxed and comfortable with our hairstyles. This is a time for many people to start getting newer haircuts that they would never normally get so they have the time to style it and fall in love with it." This means you can go your own way with a few popular styles of yore, like blunt ends and one-note cuts, Mondo added. "Blunt cuts are going out of style. Having no texture and having all your hair one length is going to be a thing of the past." So in the spirit of all things "onward and upward," we're breaking down the four haircut trends you'll want to step into the future with - because aren't we all about done with the horror show that is 2020?

This article was originally published in our subscriber-only Brexit Bulletin newsletter. You can sign up to receive this here. British and EU negotiators may be on the cusp of a trade deal – but Brexit never ends. Talks with Brussels have been dragging on for years. They will be a regular part of British life, continuing long into the future after the trade agreement is struck. Britain has escaped the EU but it can never escape negotiating with it. Even a no-deal Brexit wouldn’t prevent the unavoidable future of talks with the EU, and talks about talks with the EU. Brussels, which is always comfortable playing the long game, is reportedly considering asking for a 10- to 15-year review clause in the trade deal and fishing agreement. If presented with this demand, David Frost, the UK’s chief negotiator, would be well within his rights to channel Al Pacino in The Godfather Part III and bellow: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!” The deal that appears likely is a basic, “thin” agreement, despite bringing zero tariff, zero quota trade in goods.

French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin on Tuesday said he was launching a probe into clashes that broke out late Monday after police cleared out a new migrant camp at Place de la République in the heart of Paris, adding that images of the scuffles were "shocking". People posted photos and videos on social media of police hitting demonstrators as they moved in to clear the square of migrants' tents, which the police said had been set up without official permission."Some of the images of the dispersion of the illegal migrant camp at Place de la République are shocking," Darmanin wrote on Twitter in the early hours of Tuesday, adding that he was seeking a full report into the incident.The migrant camp at the iconic Place de la République, site of major French demonstrations, emerged just a week after police had cleared out a bigger, illegal migrant campsite near the national sports stadium on the outskirts of the French capital.< French police clear more than 2,000 people from makeshift migrant camp near Paris‘They are too violent’Police used tear gas as they dismantled the new migrant camp of around 500 blue tents, which were set up by volunteers and were quickly filled by migrants, mostly Afghans.When the police arrived to dismantle the camp, images showed officers picking up tents, sometimes with people still inside, to the protests of migrants and jeers from volunteers."They are too violent," sobbed Shahbuddin, a 34-year-old Afghan as he put a grey beanie back on his head after being forced out of his tent. "We just want a roof."Police later used tear gas to disperse the rest of the camp, driving the migrants out into the streets of central Paris.Ian Brossart, a deputy of the city's mayor in charge of housing, emergency accommodation and refugee protection, slammed the "law and order response to a social situation".Migrant issue drives up support for Le PenFrance has joined other European states, such as Italy and Britain, in taking a tougher stance on migrants since the outbreak of the Syria conflict in 2011 triggered a migrant crisis across Europe.Opinion polls show voters are worried about the issue of migration, which in turn has driven support for far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who is likely to be President Emmanuel Macron's main opponent in the next presidential election in 2022.Paris is a key stop-off point on the European migrant route, with tented camps repeatedly sprouting up around the city only to be torn down by the police a few months later.Thousands have travelled from Paris to the port of Calais and attempted to stow away on trucks heading across the Channel to England. A small number attempt the crossing by boat. Rights groups blast bill restricting police imagesThe latest clearance comes after the French government approved an amended security bill that would restrict the publication of photos or videos taken of police officers' faces while carrying out their duties in public spaces.Media unions say this could give police a green light to prevent journalists from doing their work and potentially documenting abuses by security forces.Human rights groups have blasted the new law, which sparked protests in Paris and other French cities over the weekend.The government says the proposal is intended to protect police officers from online calls for violence. Critics fear that, if enacted, the measure would endanger journalists and other observers who take videos of officers at work, especially during violent demonstrations.(FRANCE 24 with AFP, AP and REUTERS)
