A number of MPs are among the Tory rebels who voted against 'plan b' measures in last night's vote.

Downing Street’s plans include compulsory face masks, new rules on self isolation, mandatory vaccines for NHS staff and the introduction of Covid-19 passports – the latter being a huge stumbling block for backbenchers.

The rules were eventually passed and Covid-19 passes will come into effect from today (Wednesday) but 98 Tory MPs voted 'no' to this option.
