Children are suffering side-effects from taking Tamiflu, according to research

More than half of children taking Tamiflu suffer side-effects such as nausea, insomnia and nightmares, researchers said.

Two studies from experts at the Health Protection Agency (HPA) showed a „high proportion“ of British schoolchildren reporting problems after taking the anti-viral drug.

Data was gathered from children at three schools in London and one in the South West who were given Tamiflu earlier this year after classmates became infected.

The researchers behind one study said that, although children may have attributed symptoms that were due to other illnesses to the use of Tamiflu, „this is unlikely to account for all the symptoms experienced“.

Children should only be allowed to start school if they have been vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella, a leading public health expert has said as measles cases in the UK hit a record high.

Sir Sandy Macara, former chairman of the British Medical Association, will tell doctors later this month that a vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella – known as the MMR jab – should be compulsory for all children starting school.

His comments come as the Welsh health minister revealed she is exploring whether to make the vaccination compulsory for school and nursery entry.

PM warns stores over carrier bags

Gordon Brown has warned retailers he will force them to cut down on plastic bag use if they do not act voluntarily.

Writing in the Daily Mail, he told stores that „If government compulsion is needed to make the change, we will take the necessary steps.“

Campaigners say plastic bags, which take an estimated 1,000 years to decay, damage the environment.

Marks and Spencer has already announced that it will charge food shoppers 5p for each bag from 6 May.

The move follows a trial at 50 of its outlets in Northern Ireland and south-west England, which resulted in demand for polythene bags falling by more than 70%.

‚Strong action‘

Mr Brown praised the chain – which says the money raised will go to environmental charities – as well as Ikea, which stopped providing single-use plastic bags from its branches in July 2007.

But he insisted that, if other stores did not follow suit, the government would be „ready to do what it can“.

„We do not take such steps lightly – but the damage that single-use plastic bags inflict on the environment is such that strong action must be taken,“ he said.

Ideally, he said, any scheme to cut down on their use would also secure funds for environmental organisations.
