Coronavirus news LIVE: UK wakes up to LOCKDOWN as banks and post offices stay open and death toll hits 335

The UK has woken up to a lockdown this morning – after Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared a “moment of national emergency” last night.

People will only be allowed to leave their home for essential supplies, one form of daily exercise or a walk, medical care or “absolutely necessary” work.

Anyone caught flouting the measures faces a fine of between £30 and £1,000 from Thursday, when a bill containing the new legislation to deal with coronavirus is expected to become law.

Mr Johnson said the measures will be “under constant review” and will be considered for relaxation in three weeks if the evidence allows.
