Newspaper headlines: 'Red wall revolt' and Covid immunity warning
Demands from Tory MPs for a 'road map' out of lockdown and a study on Covid immunity lead the papers.
image captionSeveral of the front pages lead with a letter to the prime minister from more than 50 Conservative MPs demanding a "clear road map" for northern areas that have been hit hardest by increased coronavirus restrictions. Backbenchers, who took seats from Labour in last year's election, warned of economic hardship "with no end in sight" without a regional recovery plan, the paper reports.
image captionThe Guardian says the MPs have expressed fears the government's "levelling up" agenda for the north of England is being abandoned. In their letter, the group warns that leaving behind northern constituencies "would threaten to undermine the government's hard won mandate" in last year's election.
image caption"Boris hit by red wall MPs revolt" is the headline for the Daily Mail. The paper says the intervention is a "significant challenge" to Boris Johnson because the Northern Research Group, which co-ordinated the letter, has enough MPs to overturn his Commons majority.
image captionThe group, led by Jake Berry, a former minister and close ally of Mr Johnson, have called for a clear strategy for exiting lockdown restrictions and have urged the prime minister to give priority to infrastructure projects in the north of England, the Times reports. In response a Downing Street spokesman told the paper it was "absolutely committed to levelling up across the country and building back better after coronavirus".
image captionThe Telegraph leads with new research suggesting immunity to Covid-19 may only last a matter of months - potentially hindering the roll-out of a successful vaccine. The study by Imperial College London, which involved 365,000 people, found antibodies in the population fell by more than a quarter in three months. Scientists said the findings suggested a "rapid" decline in immunity, which could mean that even if a successful vaccine was found, it might have to be administered as often as twice a year, the paper reports.
image captionThere is positive news on the front page of the Daily Express, which says there has been a "milestone" in the hunt for a coronavirus vaccine. Hopes of a breakthrough rose last night after early trials of the Oxford vaccine showed a "strong immune response" in older volunteers, according to the paper.
image captionMeanwhile, the row over free school meals rumbles on, after the prime minister defended his refusal to extend them over the half-term holiday. "Can't you feed nation's hungry kids, too?" asks the Daily Mirror, alongside a picture of Mr Johnson serving up food during a visit to a hospital in Reading.
image caption"Britain steps up to the plates" is the Metro's headline. The paper says a "volunteer army" is trying to make sure no child goes hungry this half-term, with cafes, restaurants and takeaways offering free food to families. On Monday, the prime minister insisted he was "very proud" of the government's support for needy families.
image caption"Eatin' mess" is the Daily Star's take, which says Old Etonian Mr Johnson is still refusing to extend free school meals despite saying he understands the campaign by England footballer Marcus Rashford to tackle holiday hunger.

Brexit Britain to save world – new Covid jab wouldn't have been possible with EU red tapeAS THE days shorten with the approach of winter, there seems to be no respite from the coronavirus crisis. Infections, hospital admissions and deaths are all on the rise. In response, officialdom imposes ever-tighter restrictions on the public, with large swathes of the country now in some form of lockdown. If the vaccine proves to be successful, it has been decided that people from affluent parts of the south will be vaccinated first . More pathetic nonsenses from the increasingly deluded Leo McInstry. Fortunately for Leo most Express readers are now braindead gammon who lap up this kind of rubbish.
