NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP: £400m for arts venues & The Queen unveils statue virtually

 

A single dose of either the Oxford-AstraZeneca or Pfizer coronavirus vaccine reduces the risk of hospital admission by 80%.

The British data has been welcomed by Health Secretary Matt Hancock who said a "vaccine gap" was open in up, with death rates visibly lower amongst those who'd been inoculated.

The Chancellor is to provide £408m of funding for arts venues, in order to help museums, theatres and galleries re-open once covid restrictions ease. £150m has also been pledged to help communities take-over closed-down pubs. Keep watching your local tv channel for more on the budget as the chancellor takes to his feet...

The Queen has unveiled a statue of herself virtually - for the first time. Speaking to both the Governor and Premiere of South Australia from Windsor Castle, her majesty joked about the statue, she hopes people don’t get a shock when they see it!
