    The British government has issued a stark warning that the nation is at a tipping point with a surge in coronavirus cases. It’s said that it will impose more restrictions in England unless people follow the rules. Boris Johnson’s key medical and scientific advisers are to deliver a televised briefing on the threat posed by a second wave of the pandemic. In future people will be under a legal obligation to self-isolate if they test positive for the virus — or have been in close contact with an infected person — with fines of up to £10,000 for failure to comply. It comes as Europe faces a surge in Covid cases with new measures to contain infections being introduced in many countries. Mishal Husain presents BBC News at Ten reporting by political correspondent Iain Watson and health correspondent Catherine Burns.
