  • George North knocked out cold; Twitter argues over red card

Hughes was sent off for kneeing the Northampton and British Lions winger in the head as he scored Saints' and his second try.

  • Pharmacist 'didn't know allergy jab was for a child'

    A pharmacist who refused to dispense an EpiPen adrenalin injector without prescription to the mother of a teenager who later died from an allergic reaction told an inquest the “dynamic” would have been different if he had known it was for her daughter.

  • Irish model of two crew on deck to be Europe's standard

British airline easyJet, Norwegian Air Shuttle, and Icelandair will follow suit.

  • Vettel: 'I was s****ing myself' in the last few laps

    An emotional Sebastian Vettel struggled to contain his delight after his “dream” victory at the Malaysian Grand Prix today. Vettel grew up idolising his fellow German Michael Schumacher, who won five of his seven Formula One titles with Ferrari, and went some small way to emulating him by securing victory for the Italian team at Sepang in only his second race for them after a frustrating final year at Red Bull in 2014. The win was no fluke either as the four-time champion finished 8.5 seconds clear of 2014 championship winner Lewis Hamilton, whose Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg was a further four seconds back. Vettel was reduced to tears as the German and Italian anthems played and he later said: “This feels incredible. q

  • Psychiatrist says pilots with depression should not face flying ban

    Pilots with a history of depression should not be banned from flying commercial jets, according to a leading British psychiatrist, in a warning against a knee-jerk reaction to the French Alps air disaster. Reports have suggested Andreas Lubitz had suffered from mental health issues and may have been receiving treatment for vision problems before he steered the Germanwings Airbus A320 into the mountain range, killing all 150 people on board. A father of one of the three Britons on the flight called for more to be done to see pilots were “looked after”, while the Observer said Civil Aviation Authority documents suggested some 100 commercial airline pilots in the UK had a history of depression, with 42 still on medication.
