BORIS JOHNSON last night confirmed that the UK is under lockdown, with marriages among ceremonies to be banned.

During his daily address to the nation on the Covid-19 outbreak, he said people would be banned from leaving their home unless it’s for basic/essential food, medical treatment or supplies, to exercise once a day, to care for somebody vulnerable or to carry out essential work.

The PM said family reunions, weddings, baptisms and other social events must be cancelled but funerals can go ahead attended by a only a few closes relatives.

Anyone who flouts the new rules could be fined by police, who will break up gatherings of more than two people (if they are not from the same household), in public places.
