Watch the government's coronavirus daily public briefing.
It follows an important press conference yesterday, in which Boris Johnson announced a gradual easing of the lockdown in England.
The PM said all five of the Government's test set out in order to adjust lockdown restrictions have been met, meaning people can meet in groups of six with social distancing.
It comes as a cross-party group of 113 MPs have written to Chancellor Rishi Sunak to extend the self-employment income support scheme, warning many will not be able to return to work despite the Prime Minister's announcement on easing the lockdown.
