Is the Prime Minister Boris Johnson making an announcement today? When is his next coronavirus and lockdown press conference?

Boris Johnson has paused coronavirus briefings momentarily this week to visit some of the worst hit areas of Storm Christoph including Didsbury.

Thanking the emergency services yet again for their response to extreme flooding in parts of Wales and northern England, the Prime Minister took some time to visit those most affected by the severe weather.

But as ‘danger to life’ weather warnings stay in place until Storm Christoph ends, coronavirus cases remain on the increase, school closures could last until Easter holidays and the end of lockdown is yet to be confirmed.
