Health Secretary Matt Hancock will host a Downing Street Press Conference at 5pm this evening.

The Press Conference announcement comes as speculation increases about the possibility that current lockdown restrictions may be toughened up, with the government concerned that people are bending the rules. However this particular press conference is expected to focus more on the rollout of vaccines across the United Kingdom.

A toughening of measures could mean curfews, nurseries being closed, supermarkets could be legally obliged to enforce face masks in stores, the public told to wear masks outside and exercise limited to one hour, according to reports in newspapers such as The Mirror and The Telegraph.
