    Parliament has been recalled to vote on the latest set of restrictions, which were imposed on Monday night, with the Prime Minister making his third public appearance in as many days at 11:30am.

    Health Secretary Matt Hancock will introduce the debate this afternoon, before it goes to a vote in early evening.
