The UK is “at a dangerous moment” according to England’s deputy chief medical officer, who urged people not to abuse the new more relaxed lockdown restrictions.

Professor Van Tam reminded people of how rapidly the disease can spread through the population. People are being tempted out by the warm weather and there’s evidence that large numbers are ignoring the social distancing rules.

Some scientists, including members of the government’s own SAGE expert advisory group, have warned that the lockdown is being eased too fast, risking a second peak of coronavirus infections and deaths.
