Gibraltar has become the first nation in the world to vaccinate its entire adult population against Covid-19, the UK's Health Minister Matt Hancock announced on Thursday.

Figures released by the Gibraltar government yesterday showed that 49,981 doses had been administered: 29,834 first doses and 20,147 second.

As well as its own population, Gibraltar has also begun vaccinating its cross-border workers.
