Boris Johnson has taken the enormous step of placing the entire country in a strict lockdown. Members of the public will only be allowed to leave their homes for one of four specific reasons. To shop for essentials. To assist the vulnerable. For work, only if it is absolutely necessary. And once a day only to exercise or walk your dog. Gatherings of more than two people from different households are also banned.
The measures are initially for just three weeks, but it seems likely that they will be extended. I’m The Telegraph’s Front Bench Editor (you can sign up for my newsletter here) and at 1 p.m. (GMT) and I’ll be answering your questions this afternoon on the lockdown, it’s implications and the thinking behind it
