    Coronavirus variants first detected in India risk becoming the UK?s second most dominant within weeks, experts have warned after total cases rose to 400.

    Public Health England (PHE) said on Thursday that there was ?no evidence of widespread community transmission or that these variants cause more severe disease or render the vaccines currently deployed any less effective?.
    ?The only security we have is our ability to adapt."
