A Powys MP has urged people to keep their vaccine appointments after saying that dozens of people had failed to show for their slot on Wednesday.

Fay Jones has been volunteering at the vaccination centre at Builth Wells' Royal Welsh Showground.

And after her shift on Wednesday, she put a message on Twitter warning that as many as 45 people had missed their appointments throughout the day.

"It was a brilliant shift, and it's great to be here, but it's really sad that 45 people didn't show up for their vaccine appointments," she said on a video posted on Twitter.

"They do have a reserve list so fingers crossed those vaccines are not going to go to waste.

"But please, if you've got an appointment, please come and get your vaccine as the last thing we need is that vaccine being wasted."

The video was endorsed by the highest levels of Government, with Health Secretary Matt Hancock congratulation his fellow Conservative MP on volunteering at the site.

There are three major vaccinations sites in Powys, at Brecon, Builth Wells and Newtown.
