The return of students to university is a “huge logistical exercise” against the backdrop of Covid-19, according to Labour.

Shadow home secretary Nick Thomas-Symonds called for leadership from ministers, telling BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show: “It’s clearly a huge logistical exercise to move a million people and that’s what we’re talking about in terms of students.

“I’m afraid there is a running theme with the Government – there has to be a strategy and plan in place, whether we’re talking about a return to offices, care homes earlier in the year, whether we’re now talking about universities.

“What we need going forward is to ensure we do have the test, track and isolate strategy properly set up.”

Facebook’s head of communications Sir Nick Clegg, former Liberal Democrat deputy prime minister, was challenged about the social media giant’s response to dealing with anti-vaccination posts.

He told the same programme: “When there is a vaccine, when that is officially sanctioned, of course companies like Facebook want to actively work with the NHS and the Department of Health to make sure people know what is available to them, and Facebook has the reach to do that.”
