    Sir Patrick Vallance said complacency was the “biggest risk” following the introduction of a vaccine rollout, as he warned any relaxation of restrictions could see a surge of infections.

    He told MPs: “The biggest risk is people think this is all over.”

    Sir Patrick said there was “light at the end of the tunnel” but warned rolling out the vaccine across the population was a “long way off”.

    “It’s not the time to relax things. If that happens we will have a big surge.”
