A scheme for vaccine passports for entry to nightclubs and large events in England will not go ahead.

This is according to the UK health secretary Sajid Javid.

He said the government had looked at the evidence and has decided to drop the plan.

It was thought the plan, which came under criticism from venues and some Members of Parliament, would be introduced at the end of this month.

Under the scheme, members of the public would have been required to show proof they have had two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in order to gain entry to clubs and other crowded events.

The Night Time Industries Association said the plans could have crippled the industry and seen nightclubs facing discrimination cases.
