BREAKING: PM orders pubs, restaurants and gyms to close across the UK

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

The government will step in and help pay people's wages at businesses impacted.

Employers will be able to contact HMRC to get help with wages rather than being laid off.

There is 'no limit' on the amount of money being made available for this scheme say the government.

The prime minister also said clubs, leisure centres and theatres should close their doors too.
