Life is heavily restricted once again as the UK goes back into lockdown following a huge rise in coronavirus rates in all four nations. England’s third national lockdown began on January 4 and is currently set to last for six weeks, with the public ordered to stay at home, limit contact with others, and to not leave unless for essential reasons. The Home Secretary Priti Patel has issued a slew of warnings for those tempted to break the rules.

Announcing the lockdown, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “I want to say to everyone right across the United Kingdom that I know how tough this is, I know how frustrated you are, I know that you have had more than enough of Government guidance about defeating this virus. But now more than ever, we must pull together.”

He added: “The weeks ahead will be the hardest yet but I really do believe that we are entering the last phase of the struggle.

“Because with every jab that goes into our arms, we are tilting the odds against Covid and in favour of the British people.

“And, thanks to the miracle of science, not only is the end in sight and we know exactly how we will get there.

“But for now, I am afraid, you must once again stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.”

The answer is not at all if you can help it.

You should only travel if the trip is necessary, such as for work, food, medical reasons or to offer care.

Travelling abroad is completely off the cards currently, and travelling anywhere for anything other than the above reasons is prohibited.

This morning, the Home Secretary acknowledged that new coronavirus regulations had restricted people's freedoms but urged the public to comply with them.
