Coronavirus UK lockdown: ‘critical’ we stay home despite hottest Easter weekend

Downing Street says it's "critical" the public doesn't give up on self-isolation, but there are concerns some people fed up with quarantine won't be able to resist a day in the sun. 

The Evening Standard's Jonathan Prynn says one London council is so worried about crowds, it's asking golf courses and private schools to open up their grounds and take pressure off parks. And he warns doctors he's spoken to are terrified of what might happen if the public gives up on self-isolation now

The Evening Standard features team joins The Leader podcast to share the best of what’s on to keep the whole family entertained - at home - on what may be the hottest Easter bank holiday on record.
