Speaking on Sky News on Sunday, health secretary Sajid Javid said people should “continue with their plans as normal for Christmas” – but warned it would be “irresponsible to make guarantees”.

But asked if there would be a return to harsher restrictions, Mr Javid add: “We are not there yet – we are nowhere near that.”
