Health Secretary Matt Hancock said it is still too early to say what contact people will be able to have over Christmas and what additional restrictions may be required after lockdown is eased.

He told the Downing Street press conference: “We’re doing the work on what happens after December 2 right now, it’s still too early to tell.

“I’m afraid we still haven’t made those decisions.

“Over Christmas I know how important it is that we have a system in place, a set of rules that both keeps people safe but also allows people to see their loved ones.”
