A third wave of Covid in Europe is likely to "wash up" on UK shores, the prime minister has warned, APA reports citing BBC News.

Speaking during a visit in Lancashire, Boris Johnson says Britons should be "under no illusions that previous experience has taught us that when a wave hits our friends, I'm afraid it washes up on our shores as well and I expect we will feel those effects in due course."

He adds: "That's why we're getting on with our vaccination programme as fast as we can."

The prime minister also confirmed he has been talking to European leaders and was reassured they do not want to see blockades of vaccines.

The vaccine programmes are international projects which require "international cooperation", he says.
