Coronavirus latest: SAJID Javid will tonight dangle the prospect of a return to restrictions unless Brits get their boosters to tackle the Covid surge.

Ministers today “categorically ruled out” another lockdown – but have always suggested they’d take draconian steps if required.
Boris Johnson’s Plan B was announced last month as a back-up in case hospitalisations and deaths spiralled out of control as the country unlocked.
Yesterday Britain recorded 223 deaths – the highest since March – prompting fears of a fresh clampdown.

He said: “You wouldn’t necessarily play them all at once, far from it, you would want to do things in a graduated way.”
