The threat from Ms von der Leyen was the latest move in a standoff between the Swedish-British pharmaceutical company over delayed shipments.

Drugmaker Pfizer, which needs crucial ingredients from Yorkshire, warned the EU to back down from its threat this week.

Pfizer warned Brussels the UK could opt to retaliate against any export ban by withholding raw materials needed for its jab according to the Telegraph.

A senior source close to the vaccine-production process told the publication Pfizer is “heavily dependent” on “fatty molecules” from a chemicals firm based in Yorkshire.
