A British intelligence agency says Russian actors are trying to launch cyber-attacks on organisations working on a coronavirus vaccine.

The National Cyber Security Centre says a group called APT29 - also known as "the Dukes" or "Cozy Bear" - is trying to steal "valuable intellectual property."

The agency warns this "malicious activity" is "almost certainly" backed by Russia's intelligence services.
