Following warnings coronavirus cases could reach 49,000 a day by mid-October, the prime minister has introduced new measures.
Boris Johnson has announced further restrictions in an attempt to curb the growing spread of COVID-19 across the UK amid warnings cases and deaths could increase rapidly.
The prime minister said unless there is evidence of progress, the measures may be in place in England for six months.
These are on top of restrictions already in place, with some areas having stricter rules than others due to local spikes.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon also announced new measures for Scotland and said she hoped they would not be in place for six months but could not rule it out.
Sky News lists the new rules, what was already restricted, what you can do and what the punishment is for disobeying the rules.
