Europe's biggest biomedical lab opens

Europe’s biggest biomedical laboratory, the Francis Crick Institute, has opened in London.
The £650m building, behind St Pancras station and the British Library, will be home to 1,250 scientists.
Named after the co-discoverer of DNA structure, the Crick will examine fundamental questions about how illnesses develop, in order to find new ways to treat conditions such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and diseases of the brain.
Sir Paul, a Nobel Prize winner and former president of the Royal Society, is among the first scientists to move into the building.
