Rescue flights for stranded Britons
Tens of thousands of Britons stranded abroad by the coronavirus pandemic will be flown home under a new arrangement between the government and airlines. BA, Virgin and Easyjet are among airlines working with the government to fly Britons back to the UK. The government has also pledged £75m to charter special flights to bring home UK nationals from countries where commercial flights are unavailable.

UK not losing the battle to do enough coronavirus tests
It is just a week since the Prime Minister spoke to more than 27 million people watching on television and told us to stay at home. We were told that the shutdown of large parts of our economy, society and our daily lives would be reviewed in three weeks time. But that three week review could be followed by more restrictions, some lasting perhaps for six months.
Some argue the only way to speed up the time we can reach the moment life begins to feel more normal is through testing. But tests, like ventilators and protective masks and aprons are in short supply.
