The former UK prime minister is calling for spare vaccines to be immediately airlifted by the military to poorer countries.

He says 100 million vaccines will pass their use-by date by the end of the year and richer countries not sharing Covid vaccines "is waste on a colossal scale".

Gordon Brown speaks to Newsnight’s Mark Urban.
