Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed plans for fans to return to watch live sport events in England from 1 October will not go ahead.
The plans were placed under review after a rise in coronavirus cases.
The UK’s Covid-19 alert level has moved to 4, meaning transmission is “high or rising exponentially”.
“We have to acknowledge the spread of the virus is now affecting our ability to reopen large sporting events,” said the prime minister. (BBC)
