NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP: PM’s lockdown comments denied by Downing Street & young urged to get vaccine

 

Reports that Boris Johnson said he would "rather see bodies piled high in their thousands" than enter a third lockdown are "categorically not true" according to a cabinet minister. 

The claims outlined in the Daily Mail are believed to have related to last Autumn. Labour have said the report was "shocking and sickening". Number 10 have denied the claims.

England's vaccine rollout has been extended to those aged 44 and over. The news comes as the NHS launch a new TV ad encouraging under 50's to get their jab. More than 33.6 million people have now received their first dose whilst over twelve and a half million are fully vaccinated.

Nomadland was the big winner at this year's Oscars, with director Chloe Zhao making history as only the second woman to win a best director Oscar. Daniel Kaluuya scooped best supporting actor, and Anthony Hopkins best actor.
