Boris Johnson also confirmed that schools would close and that exams would be cancelled.

All schools, primary, secondary, colleges and universities, have now moved to remote learning.

Education Secretary Gavin Willamson is working with Ofqual to decide how to proceed with exams this summer.

He said the aim would be to "steadily move out of lockdown" and reopen schools after the February half-term.

Mr Johnson said: "I want to say to everyone in the UK: I know how tough this is, I know how frustrated you are and I know you've had more than enough of Government guidance about defeating this virus but now more than ever we must pull together."
