    Boris Johnson has said he is “optimistic” that people will be able to go on holiday this summer, as long as the vaccines start to keep Covid under control.

    The Prime Minister hailed the news that “all elderly care homes residents – virtually all – have had their first jab, or a slot for their first jab” during a visit to a vaccination centre in West Yorkshire.

    Asked what that means for allowing a return to normality, he said: “I don’t want to give too much concrete by way of dates for our summer holidays. I am optimistic – I understand the reasons for being optimistic – but some things have got to go right.
