Boris Johnson has raised concerns that a second wave of the virus could strike the UK if social distancing measures are not adhered to - while urging members of the public not to use rainy weather as an excuse to bring gatherings indoors.

It comes as fears that MPs are being unnecessarily exposed to the virus by returning to Westminster mount as the Business Secretary Alok Sharma - who appeared visibly unwell in the chamber - was tested for the virus.​

Meanwhile Italy, once the European epicentre of the Covid-19 pandemic, is to reopen its borders to travellers from most European countries from Wednesday, while also lifting restrictions on domestic travel.
