Drugs giant AstraZeneca faces a landmark High Court battle over accusations that some doses of its Covid-19 vaccine were 'defective' and claims of its efficacy were 'vastly overstated'.

Two test cases are expected before the court after recipients developed a rare condition following the rollout of the jab in 2021.

The vaccine, developed in partnership with Oxford University, was heralded for its role in the UK's fightback against Covid, with more than 150million doses administered to date. Some six million lives were saved by the jab, studies show.

But it triggered blood clots in a very small number of people – some that lead to fatal complications. The condition is known as known as vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (VITT).

Bringing the court action is IT engineer Jamie Scott, who suffered a brain haemorrhage the day after his first AstraZeneca jab, leaving him with permanent brain damage.
