In today's national coronavirus news:

A third Covid vaccine has been approved for use in the UK as the country battles a rapid rise in cases.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has approved the Moderna coronavirus vaccine, the Department for Health has announced.

The new vaccine works in a similar way to the Pfizer vaccine that is already being offered by the NHS.

The Moderna vaccine requires temperatures of around -20C, similar to a normal freezer, making it easier to store and distribute.

The Government has ordered 17 million doses of the Moderna jab, but supplies will not delivered until the spring.
