UK Covid-19 vaccine trial: Concern over numbers willing to take part

Over 150 vaccines are under development globally, all at unprecedented speed.

A large-scale trial is due to begin in Yorkshire, but to make it work thousands of recruits will have to be found in a matter of weeks.

There are concerns about the number of people who say they would not take a vaccine, particularly in some of the communities most at risk.
