The Covid-19 lockdown will be discussed at an emergency Cobra meeting today - amid speculation it could continue into May.

Boris Johnson remains in intensive care with coronavirus but his condition is said to be improving.

The Chancellor says Boris Johnson is "engaging positively" with medics at St Thomas's Hospital in London.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Secretary will hold an emergency Cobra meeting later to review lockdown restrictions.

It's been almost three weeks since they were first introduced - but the Welsh First Minister says he won't be lifting the measures yet.
