Top-secret military warning on Ebola biological weapon terror threat

Porton Down memo marked ‘UK secret UK eyes only’ reveals scientists analysed use of virus by al-Qaida or Isis

Scientists at the top-secret military research unit at Porton Down, Wiltshire, have been assessing the potential use of Ebola as a bioterrorism weapon, according to confidential documents.


A three-page memo, marked ‘UK secret UK eyes only’, reveals that the unit, where chemical, radiological and biological threats are analysed, was tasked with evaluating whether terrorist organisations such as al-Qaida and Islamic State (Isis) could use the deadly virus to attack western targets.

Six Nations clashes show the game facing brutal reality of extreme exposure

Full-on, legal contact is part and parcel of the modern game as has been vividly illustrated in the battles between No8s and No10s in this year’s Six Nations but might a revision of the rules lower the chances of injury and improve the game?

• Finn Russell upends Dan Biggar

• Pascal Papé given ban for challenge on Jamie Heaslip

• England 47-17 Italy

Before the Six Nations started, there was concern for the outside halves of Europe. Would Jonathan Sexton be sound of mind after the multiple concussions of 2014 to direct Ireland’s defence of their title? Would Dan Biggar and Finn Russell be able to carry the authority they showed in November into the championship where there are no secrets. Would George Ford be able to consolidate the position he had carved out for himself at the end of the autumn series?


The questions were asked because the outside world generally cared for these players, (relatively) small of stature but still the central characters on the field. Nobody on the inside had made much of an effort to protect them. In fact, by introducing an offside line five metres behind the rear foot of the set scrum, the game exposed them to the rampages of No8s specifically constructed not to be all-round tall and rangy in the mould of Mervyn Davies, but built for destruction at the end of a burst from a standing start – chargers like Taulupe Faletau, Ben Morgan and Billy Vunipola.

The aristo and the spiv: the true story of the men behind the Who

Pop impresarios are often the hidden power behind the biggest acts, now two films turn spotlight on Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp

In the telling of rock’n’roll history, managers rarely claim centre stage. That is about to change with a documentary about the relationship between Kit Lambert, the aristocratic, homosexual son of the classical composer Constant Lambert, and Chris Stamp, the son of a tugboat captain, as played out through the creation and management of the Who.


The band has never shied away from crediting the pair – described by singer Roger Daltrey as “the shell of the egg” – but their role in guiding the group from their early days as guitar-smashing mods to their peak of 70s rock indulgence has never been examined so clearly.

Scotland’s wily Majid Haq eyes taking the scalp of faltering England

As Scotland’s most-capped player and one wicket short of being their highest wicket-taker, Majid Haq believes his side have a great chance against England at the cricket World Cup

• Scotland lose to New Zealand by three wickets

• England lose to New Zealand by eight wickets

• Australia thrash England by 111 runs


Majid Haq does not need the numeracy skills he acquired in his former life as an accountant to work out the equation should England lose their third successive match of this World Cup against Scotland on Sunday night.


The brutal defeat at the hands of a rampant New Zealand in Wellington on Friday means England have little time to piece together their shattered confidence before their next match, against the auld enemy at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval. Another loss for a team shorn of dignity after twin thrashings by co-hosts Australia and New Zealand would mean almost certain elimination from the tournament.

José Mourinho blames referee for Nemanja Matic’s dismissal

• ‘Burnley’s Barnes should have been sent off in first half’

• Sean Dyche ‘flummoxed’ by Mourinho’s complaints

• Match report: Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

José Mourinho has suggested that only bad decisions by officials can prevent his team from winning the Premier League title this season. The Chelsea manager continued his campaign against what he sees as the injustices that have hampered his side after Chelsea dropped two points at home to Burnley and had Nemanja Matic sent off – an outcome Mourinho says arose because of four calls by Martin Atkinson.


“I’m happy that I’m not stupid and I understood everything a couple of months ago,” Mourinho said. “If you tell me this story that started a couple of months ago finished today and now we have 12 matches to play with an advantage of five points, I tell you [we will be] champions. But I don’t know if that story ends here or if you have more waiting for us.”

Ousted Ukraine leader aiming to return as rebel rockets threaten peace plan

Disgraced president Viktor Yanukovych speaks out from exile in Russia as thousands gather for pro-Putin rally in Moscow

Ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych has controversially spoken out from self-imposed exile in Russia, promising, exactly a year after he fled Kiev, to return to Ukraine to “ease people’s lives” and help stop the war.


Yanukovych’s interview with Russia’s state-owned Channel One was his first public appearance since he gave two bizarre press conferences in Rostov-on-Don in February and March 2014, claiming he remained Ukraine’s president.


‘We’re getting ready to hold more rallies, mobilise people and show that Mariupol is a Ukrainian city’

Mo Farah admits Twitter row with Andy Vernon inspired him to record run

• Farah: ‘I love representing my country and giving something back’

• Andy Vernon tweeted his praise for Farah’s ‘cracking run’

• Farah accuses Vernon of not regarding him as British

Mo Farah has revealed that his heated rows with fellow British athlete Andy Vernon, played out on Twitter and then in the media, spurred him on to break his first world record.


Farah, who was competing over two miles at the Birmingham indoor grand prix, took the lead with six laps to go before running 57 seconds for the final 400m to win in 8min 3.40sec – nearly a second faster than Kenenisa Bekele’s old world record. Afterwards, Farah admitted that the events of the past week – which started on Tuesday, when Vernon tweeted that he ran against “joke” fields in Britain, and flared up again on Friday, when Farah accused Vernon of questioning his nationality when the pair won 10,000m gold and silver at last year’s European Championships – had made him more determined to break the record.

Back on home turf, Chelsea fans condemn club’s Paris racism shame

Some say rise of nationalist chants at away games recalls far-right links of 1980s hooligans

It was “building bridges” day at Chelsea on Saturday. But most of those congregating on Fulham Road before the Premier League match against Burnley, which finished 1-1, accepted that the route to restoring the club’s reputation following the disgraceful scenes in Paris last week by a racist minority would require more than a “support Chelsea, support equality” initiative.


The general consensus was revulsion that the club had been shamed by the type of supporter for which it was once notorious.
