Boris Johnson has told people to take seriously the social distancing advice to stop the spread of coronavirus, saying it is “absolutely crucial”.
The PM thanked people for “the sacrifice” they had made, but warned those going to parks and open spaces they must stay 2m away from others.
“If you don’t do it responsibly… we will have to bring forward further measures,” he said.
The number of people who have died with the virus in the UK has reached 281.
The NHS in England has identified 1.5 million of the most at-risk people who should now stay at home for 12 weeks.
The PM told those people to “shield” themselves, adding it “will do more than any other single measure that we are setting out to save life”.
