He says any relaxation of social distancing rules will lead to more deaths. 684 more people have died in the UK in the last 24 hours. Among them were two NHS nurses, each leaving behind 3 children.

NHS and other frontline staff are facing huge difficulties — one intensive care consultant has been keeping a video diary charting the pressures they are facing. Clive Myrie presents BBC News at Ten coverage from Health Editor Hugh Pym, Political Correspondent Vicki Young and Health Correspondent Catherine Burns.

Dominic Raab says the UK is in a position to begin to think about the next phase of its COVID-19 response but there is no change to lockdown rules as deaths rise by 539.
