'Christmas bubbles': Michael Gove announces relaxation of Covid measures over festive period – video

Families across the UK will be able to gather in three-household groups of any size over Christmas, Michael Gove announced, after the heads of the devolved governments agreed on a relaxation of Covid restrictions over the festive period.

The long-planned idea of ‘Christmas bubbles’ – which Gove insisted demonstrated a ‘cautious approach’ – was thrashed out in a meeting involving the four UK nations. It will allow people to travel around freely from 23 to 27 December, irrespective of what local tier of Covid restrictions they live in.
