Pfizer and AstraZeneca deny Covid vaccine shortage

The two vaccine manufacturers both said they remained on course to meet delivery commitments, denying any disruption to supplies.

Their statements appeared to contradict a letter from NHS England, which warned vaccination centres there would be a “significant reduction” in supplies in April.

Vaccination centres and community pharmacy-led services were told to close unfilled bookings and “ensure no further appointments are uploaded” to booking systems next month.

Inquest into the death of Sarah Everard to set to open

A coroner will begin proceedings in Maidstone, Kent, as police continue their investigations into what happened to the 33-year-old.

It comes after a second post-mortem examination was carried out on Ms Everard’s body when the first proved inconclusive, police said.

Ms Everard went missing on March 3 while walking home after visiting a friend in south London.

Her body was found in woodland near Ashford in Kent a week later, and serving police officer Wayne Couzens has been charged with her murder.
