The University of Oxford coronavirus vaccine has been shown to trigger a strong immune response in people over 60, raising hopes that it could be used to protect the most vulnerable from the virus.

Researchers said the phase two trial findings were “encouraging”, with results from the late stage trial expected within weeks.

It comes as the government considers ways to allow households to mix over Christmas, with scientists warning every day of freedom may require five days of tougher measures to make up for it.

Reports suggest households might be allowed to mix indoors for a five-day period from Christmas Eve, with ministers considering plans to allow three or four households to form bubbles.
