A further 28 people have died in England, bringing the total number of confirmed deaths from coronavirus in the United Kingdom to 465.

Over half a million people have now signed up as volunteers to help vulnerable people amid the coronavirus crisis.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the UK is "coping very well indeed under the most challenging possible circumstances", adding that the Government was "massively ramping up" testing.

Britain has about 8300 cases.
