Covid-19: Facebook rejects businessman's jab advert

Facebook has apologised for rejecting a businessman's advert designed to encourage black and Asian people to have the Covid-19 vaccine.

Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones wanted to raise awareness about the importance of being vaccinated and shared a picture of him receiving the jab.

But when he tried to promote the post on Facebook, it was rejected because it said the content was "shocking".

Facebook said it had made a mistake and the advert had since been approved.

Mr Emmanuel-Jones runs The Black Farmer, a firm selling meats and deli products from his Devon farm.
