Sir Lenny Henry has written an open letter urging black Britons to take the Covid-19 vaccine.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, the comedian and actor said: “There’s a disproportionate amount of black people dying… the vaccine is our way out”.

The letter has been signed by high-profile figures such as actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, YouTube star KSI and actress Thandie Newton.

Vaccination rates among black Britons are considerably lower than among white Britons.
