The Government has warned the European Union that any attempt to block the export of coronavirus vaccine to the UK, would be “counterproductive”.

The Defence Secretary, Ben Wallace, told the BBC there was a risk of reputational damage to the EU, if it prevents vaccines manufactured on the continent from being exported.

There is widespread frustration in some EU countries that they’re not receiving the doses they need.
