Britain takes vaccine lead, Brexit talks stumble, Ashtead pops

V for vaccine: A 90-year-old Briton became the first person to be inoculated against Covid-19 this morning as the UK begins its mass vaccination programme. The name Margaret Keenan will hopefully be remembered for symbolizing a momentous turning point in the fight against the virus.
