An 82-year-old man has become the first person in the world to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine since it was approved for use in the UK.

Brian Pinker, a patient at Churchill hospital on dialysis for kidney disease, was the first to receive the jab on Monday morning.

The retired maintenance manager said he was looking forward to spending his 48th wedding anniversary with his wife, Shirley, in February.

The second person to receive the jab was Trevor Cowlett, an 88-year-old music teacher, while the third was Professor Andrew Pollard, a paediatrician working at the Oxford University Hospitals.
