NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP: Mix and match vaccine trial underway & The Queen seen since Duke’s death

 

A major UK trial looking into whether different coronavirus vaccines can be mixed for first and second doses is being expanded.

It's thought combining jabs could give longer-lasting immunity, offering more flexibility on the rollout too. Adults over 50 who've had their first dose of Pfizer or AstraZeneca are being asked to take part.

The Queen has returned to royal duties just four days after the death of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh. The ninety-four year old monarch hosted an in-person event to mark the retirement of her household's most senior officials, Lord Chamberlain Earl Peel who’d been working on funeral arrangements.

And finally, a poll by Opinium suggests the number of Brits who want to work from home for good has fallen sharply since last year. 37% wanted to work mostly or completely from the office, whilst 64% of 18-34's craved the return of the office environment.
