As coronavirus cases in the UK continue to rise, the government is set to bring in new restrictions on social gatherings.
Boris Johnson will use a press conference on Wednesday to announce the change in the law after the number of daily positive COVID-19 cases in the UK rose to almost 3,000.
Social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday as the government seeks to curb the rise.
The legal limit on social gatherings will be reduced from 30 people to six. It will apply to gatherings indoors and outdoors – including private homes, as well as parks, pubs and restaurants.
