The Government followed up yesterday's demand for people to stay at home with a mass text message to the whole population.

The Health Secretary said the new instructions were not requests but rules - but questions remain over exactly who is allowed to leave their home and how the police will enforce it.

He also announced a recruitment drive for 250,000 volunteers to help the NHS - and plans for a new hospital to open next week at the Excel Centre in east London.
