Self-isolation for contacts of people with confirmed coronavirus will be shortened from 14 to 10 days across the UK from Monday.

The change will also apply to people instructed to quarantine after returning from high-risk countries.

And it means anyone who has been self-isolating for 10 days or more will be able to end their quarantine on Monday.

The announcement comes as data shows Covid cases falling in most of England and Northern Ireland.
