UK coronavirus: Britain could face Italy-style lockdown as Matt Hancock says ‘nothing is off table’ to curb Covid-19 spread

The UK is facing tougher restrictions on people’s movement after many flouted coronavirus social distancing rules at the weekend by flocking to parks and beaches.

Boris Johnson warned Britain could face an Italy-style lockdown if warnings were not heeded within the next 24 hours.

It came as schools were preparing for a “challenging” situation amid concerns more pupils than expected could turn up despite them being officially closed last week.

Meanwhile, the Tokyo Olympics appear certain to be postponed until next year due to the coronavirus, as Canada and Australia said they were looking ahead to a 2021 Games.
