The government has been accused of causing “chaos” after a last-minute decision to keep all London primary schools closed when term begins.

The U-turn comes as high coronavirus infection levels in the capital have put rising pressure on hospitals.

Ministers said closures were a “last resort” and education was a priority.

But Labour said the move had created “huge stress” for pupils, teachers and parents – while a union called for all schools to be shut nationwide.

The daily number of new Covid cases in the UK has topped 50,000 for the past four days, as the country struggles to control a new variant of the virus.

The president of the Royal College of Physicians, Prof Andrew Goddard, told the BBC the variant was spreading across the country, and added: “All hospitals that haven’t had the big pressures that they’ve had in the South East, London and south Wales should expect that it’s going to come their way.”
