Comet lander scientist Dr Matt Taylor apologises for shirt

One of the scientists involved in the Philae lander mission has apologised for any offence caused over a shirt he wore earlier in the week.

Dr Matt Taylor's shirt - depicting scantily-clad women - attracted a barrage of criticism on social media.

In an online news update giving the latest information about the mission on Friday, he said he had made "a big mistake", and that he was "very sorry".
