UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that all cafes, pubs and restaurants must close from midnight tonight in a bid to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.
This also includes all of the UK’s nightclubs, theatres, cinemas, gyms and leisure centres.
Take-away food establishments will remain open.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak said government is to pay 80% of wages for employees not working – up to £2,500 a month.
The closures are to be reviewed monthly.
