Health Secretary Matt Hancock will update politicians on the latest situation with the Covid pandemic as parts of the UK start to open again.

For the first time in months, people can now sit indoors at pubs and hug their loved ones as England's Covid restrictions start to ease.

Friends and family can meet inside with other households in limited numbers.

On Sunday Health Secretary Matt Hancock insisted it was right to continue with the easing of restrictions despite concerns over the Indian coronavirus variant.

There are also changes for travel - with countries including Portugal welcoming tourists back.
