The UK’s Covid-19 alert level has moved to 4, meaning transmission is “high or rising exponentially”.

New measures will be set out by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, cabinet office minister Michael Gove confirmed plans for a staged return of fans would be “paused”.

“We were looking at a staged programme of more people returning – it wasn’t going to be the case that we were going to have stadiums thronged with fans,” Michael Gove said.

“We’re looking at how we can, for the moment, pause that programme, but what we do want to do is to make sure that, as and when circumstances allow, get more people back.”
