The Austrian government has said it will scrap the country's controversial policy of mandatory vaccination against the coronavirus, just months after it became law.

The measure - which was an EU first - came into legal effect at the beginning of February and the first checks had been planned for mid-March, with those refusing to get the jab facing fines of up to €3,600.

However, the measure was suspended in March before any checks took place, with the government saying such a far-reaching measure could no longer be justified by the danger the coronavirus posed.
