    But also today, new figures show the extent to which some groups are still not taking up the offer of a vaccine.

    The latest 24-hour government figures show a further 23 people are reported to have died with Covid, bringing the UK total to 126,615. There have been another 4,600 new cases in the UK. And another 293,000 people received their first dose of the Covid vaccine yesterday.
