Cafes, pubs and restaurants must close from Friday night, except for take-away food, to tackle coronavirus, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.
All the UK’s nightclubs, theatres, cinemas, gyms and leisure centres have also been asked to close “as soon as they reasonably can”.

First Minister Arlene Foster also reinforced the Prime Ministers message and said that “all options being kept under review in terms of possibly fining people who don’t comply with social distancing.”
