Richard Conroy the first in Wiltshire to receive the vaccine

Richard Conroy has become the first person in the Wiltshire Council area to have received the vaccine.

Mr Conroy was the first person to receive it at 8.30am at the Corn Exchange in Devizes.

There is no official date yet for when the vaccine will be administered to people aged 80 or above in Salisbury.

However, a GP who used to practise in the city expects it to happen by the end of the year.

The Pfizer/BioNTech jab is currently being rolled out by NHS staff in around 50 hospitals across the country and by a number of GPs.
