A minute’s silence across the UK

There will be a minute’s silence across the UK at 11:00 BST on Tuesday to remember key workers who have lost their lives to coronavirus.

Government workers will take part, and No 10 said it hoped others will too.

Boris Johnson has backed the plan, following a campaign by the Royal College of Midwives, the Royal College of Nursing, and Unison, the union.

At least 90 NHS staff have died since 25 March, as have many care and transport workers.

The prime minister’s official spokesman said the government supported the idea.
