THERE will be "no changes" to Britain's lockdown today ahead of the sunny Bank Holiday weekend - after Boris Johnson urged "maximum caution".

Dominic Raab confirmed the news that the lockdown is formally extended at tonight's No10 press conference as the virus is still "deadly and infectious" - and stressed the PM would say more on Sunday.

The PM will address the nation at the weekend and is expected to relax some small measures, but the lockdown will carry on in most forms.

Mr Raab told the public today:"I've said it very clearly - there is no change in the rules today.
"What the PM will do is set out a roadmap with milestones, that can look to the future.

"The virus is not beaten yet - it remains deadly and infectious.

"We are working hard to bring it down in areas of concern.

"I am confident we can and we will do it."

He refused to "jump the gun" and reveal what changes could come in the next few days.
