LONDON (Reuters) - A representative of the EU's delegation in Britain has been summoned by London after European Council President Charles Michel said the country has an outright ban on exports of COVID-19 shots, The Sun newspaper reported.

"(Foreign minister Dominic) Raab now written to Michel demanding this is corrected," The Sun's Harry Cole wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, a British government spokesman said the country has not blocked the export of coronavirus vaccines.

The Foreign Office could not be reached by telephone and did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
