Health Secretary Matt Hancock answered questions from LBC listeners in the first phone-in with a Cabinet minister since the coronavirus crisis began - watch it in full right here.

Mr Hancock took calls from members of the public about whatever questions people wanted to ask him about the UK's response to Covid-19.

The Health Secretary spoke to Nick Ferrari last week and insisted he's very confident they will meet the target of 100,000 coronavirus by Thursday's deadline.

And he dismissed speculation that the UK will require people to wear facemasks to go out in public - as is the case in a number of other countries - saying evidence they are helpful in stopping the virus is "extremely weak".
