The Prime Minister is set to announce plans to suspend COVID-19 restrictions during the Christmas period to allow families to get together.

Boris Johnson is aiming for a UK-wide relaxation of the rules, reportedly from 22 to 28 December, so that several families can join in one "bubble".

A tougher three-tiered system of local restrictions will also come into force in England when the lockdown ends on 2 December.

Mr Johnson will unveil his COVID Winter Plan to MPs on Monday.
