Scientists have been given the go-ahead to create human-animal embryos.

The hybrid embryos will be produced by mixing human cells with animal eggs.

Controversially, the embryos will only be 99.9% human. Around 0.1% of the DNA will be from the animal.

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority approved thework in principle after a public consultation found the majority of people were at ease with the research.

The decision will infuriate religious groups, who say scientists are playing God.
