England's biggest coronavirus vaccine centre offers jab to over 18 for one day only in Twickenham.

Coronavirus latest: England's biggest coronavirus vaccination centre in Twickenham Stadium, London breaks policy to offer jab to anyone over 18 for one day only.

Dr Genevieve Small, Chair of Harrow Clinical Commissioning Group says there are around 400 staff are involved in preparing and giving the jabs at Twickenham Stadium.

The home of English rugby was converted to a vaccination centre on Monday as people took advantage of the sunny spring Bank Holiday to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

The north-west London borough of Hounslow was offering the one-day walk-in event at Twickenham Stadium to all eligible local residents, under the appropriately-themed banner "Let's tackle COVID".

The England Rugby Football Union said it was also supporting the programme after a recent spike in coronavirus cases in the area.

Britain reported 3,240 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday (May 30), a drop from 3,398 cases the previous day, and six deaths within 28 days of a positive test compared with seven on Saturday.

The total number of people who had received the first dose of a vaccine increased to 39,259,168, Public Health England said.

Britain also allowed international travel to resume, with quarantine rules still in place for most arrivals. The government aims to lift most remaining restrictions in England by June 21.
