Ministers will step up calls for people to book a Covid vaccination as soon as they are offered one, amid increasing concern about the Indian variant.

The health secretary said anyone who was unsure should look at Bolton, where most people in hospital with Covid were eligible for a jab but had not had one.

Matt Hancock said 86 local councils had five or more cases of the variant that is thought to be more transmissible.

It comes as lockdowns eased in England, Wales and most of Scotland on Monday.

Yasmin Qureshi, the Labour MP for Bolton South East, challenged the suggestion that her constituents had refused the vaccine, blaming poor organisation instead.

More than 36.7m people have had their first vaccine dose in the UK and more than 20.2m have had their second.
