Everton have swooped on deadline day to agree a deal with Chelsea to sign defender Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan. Zouma will become the fifth player through the door at Goodison Park this summer after the signings of Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Joao Virginia and Bernard. Brazilian winger Bernard was announced by the club on Thursday and Zouma could follow him as a second deadline-day signing.

However, the latest research suggests some of the widely-accepted ideas around how animal species evolved on Earth need to be revised. The latest findings suggest the animal kingdom we occupy is much older than previously thought and was diversifying well before previous estimates, which placed the arrival of most animal species during the Cambrian explosion 541 million years ago. In research published in the journal Palaeontology, we show that this question is answered by Cambrian period fossils of a frond-like sea creature called Stromatoveris psygmoglena. Scientists have long speculated that a large oxygen spike during the 'Cambrian Explosion' was key to the development of many animal species. We can be confident, however, that the animal kingdom we occupy is much older than we once thought.

Boris Johnson is a publicity-seeking buffoon, who would make just about the worst Prime Minister on record. The knock-about jokes I can live without, but l respect his right to free speech. Apologies are totally worthless in modern society, ten a penny. The cornerstone of modern society is the ability to disagree. In many ways free speech is facing a perfect storm of challenges.
