NATIONAL NEWS ROUNDUP: Test and Trace criticised & warning against summer holidays

 

NHS Test and Trace has had "no real impact" - that's the claim from a report by MPs.

The Public Accounts Committee chair Meg Hillier said it was hard to point to a "measurable difference" the system has made. £37bn has been set aside for it over two years, but Baroness Dido Harding in charge of Test and Trace has defended the system.

Grant Shapps has urged the public not to book foreigns holidays - that's after fears the PMs roadmap could see delays. The transport secretary has come under fire from Travel and tourism chiefs who say the sector needs optimism not "doom and gloom".

Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor - whose kitchen disco helped many through lockdown has been seen delivering pints from a height in a cherry picker. Heineken have been rewarding home working Brits ahead of a tour across London, Birmingham, and Manchester.
