Fourth lockdown 'unlikely' but restrictions could return if variants resist vaccine

Another crippling lockdown is 'unlikely' but restrictions could return if new Covid variants prove resistant to vaccines, a leading scientist has said.

The expert whose modelling led to the first nationwide lockdown last year, Professor Neil Ferguson, was reported to have said the UK is 'on a steady course' out of the pandemic.

He went on to warn there could be a 'roll back' of some of the newly re-introduced freedoms. He said this would be because of new variants that could prove resistant to vaccines.
