A flu vaccine has been recalled from thousands of surgeries and pharmacies across Europe amid fears it is making people ill.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a warning over Preflucel, a popular influenza vaccine.
Around 300,000 doses of the drug are to be immediately withdrawn following fears from health bosses that the most recent batch, issued last month, is causing side-effects.
A high percentage of those vaccinated with Preflucel have reported fatigue, muscle pain and headaches.
Alternative products will now be made available to prevent any shortages.
Newbury-based Baxter Healthcare, which manufacturers the drug, approved for use in March said that patients with concerns should contact their GP.
