Boris Johnson has told cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants across the UK to close tonight "as soon as they reasonably can and not to open tomorrow" in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.

The Prime Minister told a press conference that the measure is necessary to "push down the curve" as the number of deaths in the UK rose to 167.

Mr Johnson said food outlets can continue to provide take-out services.
