Boris Johnson has said schools in England will shut from Friday until further notice for most pupils, following closures across the rest of the UK.

The prime minister also confirmed, “exams will not take place as planned in May and June”.

The announcement means Schools across England, Wales and Scotland will close by the end of the week as part of a response to slow down the coronavirus across the UK.

Meanwhile, schools in Northern Ireland will close to pupils from 5pm on Wednesday.
