10:32 pm
as a result of covid, and their families and friends. across the nhs, captain sir tom has left a lasting legacy, like here in southampton, where some of the money he raised helped to pay for a hospital scheme to support vulnerable patients. loneliness was a real passion point for him, and again, i think this project in particular will help to support his legacy and what he really wanted to do as a result of his fundraising. applause the world war ii veteran made an impact on everyone, from cadets at the army foundation college where he was honorary colonel, to the players of the premier league who paid tribute before tonight's games. they played on doorsteps and applauded on streets up and down the country, and at hospitals, including bedford, which treated captain sir tom, they clapped with extra feeling.

10:34 pm
15% of the population — has now received a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine. the metro quotes england's chief medical officer saying "�*we are past the peak�* of the pandemic. professor chris whitty hailed a continual steady decline in the death toll but warned infection rates remained incredibly high. according to the guardian, the nhs has been urged to rethink safety for thousands of front line staff after new research found that coughing generated at least ten times more infectious "aerosol " particles than speaking or breathing. the daily mail says the prime minister is backing its campaign for a statue of captain sir tom moore — who died aged 100 yesterday. and the times says consumers face higher prices on meat, cheese and gas heating under plans being drawn up by borisjohnson for new carbon taxes and charges. so let's begin.
