“That means no household mixing indoors and avoid public transport.”

He added: “MPs are told the doubling time in London is 7-10 days. Mixing between households is driving the spread, with the virus moving from younger to older populations.”

Political Reporter Shehab Khan said: “I’m told that London MPs have just been informed that the capital will be moving into Tier 2 by Saturday.

“It means no mixing with anyone outside your household or support bubble indoors.

“Rule of six still applies for outdoors and private gardens”
