Boris Johnson has held a coronavirus press conference alongside Professor Chris Whitty amid confusion between the four UK nations on Christmas guidance.

The Prime Minister insisted today there is "unanimous agreement" across the four UK nations "that we should proceed in principle with the existing regulations".
