A woman asked if she would be able to hug her grandchildren when lockdown is eased in the first question from the public at the Downing Street coronavirus press conference.
Lynn from Skipton was the first non-journalist given the chance to grill ministers and health officials- a new element being introduced at the daily briefings as part of a transparency drive by Number 10.
The query was chosen from more than 15,000 posed by members of the public on Monday. The woman asked: ‘I’m missing my grandchildren so much.
Please can you let me know if, after the five criteria are met, is being able to hug our closest family one of the first steps out of lockdown?’ (Text and photo courtesy Metro)
