The UK has recorded 54,674 new coronavirus cases and 41 deaths in the latest 24-hour period.

The figure is a rise on Friday’s 51,870 cases, which was the highest since mid-January. Some 49 deaths were reported on Friday.

On vaccinations, 67,956 people had their first dose on Friday, while 188,976 completed their course.

It brings the total number of people who have had both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine across the UK to 35,732,297 – 67.8% of adults.

The numbers come amid disruption on some parts of the UK’s transport network, with the NHS COVID-19 app alerts leaving some services suspended due to a lack of staff available.

London’s Metropolitan Tube Line has been fully suspended, while the Piccadilly and District Lines face severe delays.

Trains in the North are also affected by delays and cancellations, with services serving Lincoln, Leeds, Retford and Huddersfield all facing disruption.
