Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants families to be able to spend Christmas together, Downing Street has said.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman told a Westminster briefing: “I think the PM has been clear in his desire to try and allow families to have Christmas together.
“We accept it won’t be a normal Christmas but as I say the PM has been clear in his desire for families to be able to see each other.
“I think the point I would make is we are taking the tougher measures now to drive down the level of transmission, to drive down the number of patients admitted to hospital and then ultimately, those who end up on ICU and sadly die.
“We are taking these tougher measures now so that, as I say, the PM has given his clear intent to allow families to spend Christmas together.”
