A UK GP has been hailed as “amazing” for returning to a burning community centre to retrieve the vaccination fridge containing COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Dr Richard Strickland, 49, went back into the Emerbrook Community Centre in Thames Ditton in Surrey to secure the fridge and its precious contents as smoke and flames billowed from the roof.
