Coronavirus UK: PM to address nation after emergency COBRA meeting on coronavirus

The prime minister has cancelled his daily coronavirus news conference and will instead address the nation this evening.

Boris Johnson is understood to be chairing an emergency COBRA meeting over the pandemic this afternoon.

It comes after he warned the UK is heading towards a lockdown, after appeals to the public to stay indoors were largely ignored during a sunny Mother’s Day.

Mr Johnson said further measures would be considered in the next 24 hours to prevent the spread of COVID-19 if people fail to stay 2m (6.5ft) apart.
