All cafes, pubs, bars, restaurants and gyms must close tonight

Boris Johnson has ordered cafes, pubs, bars, restaurants and gyms to close from tonight in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

It comes after the total number of people who have died in the UK after contracting COVID-19 rose to 177 after England saw 39 more deaths – the biggest rise in a day.

There were 3,269 confirmed cases in the UK recorded by Thursday evening – that figure will be updated later today.

A third person in Wales died after contracting COVID-19 – a 71-year-old with underlying health conditions.

Northern Ireland also confirmed testing there had resulted in nine new positive cases, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in Northern Ireland to 86.
