It’s Tuesday 23 March 2021. Our top stories this morning 0:00

The UK is marking one year since the first coronavirus lockdown was announced.

On 23 March 2020 Boris Johnson outlined measures to stop the spread of Covid-19. Since then, the UK’s official death toll has risen from 364 to 126,172.

With the lockdown have come tough restrictions on socialising, closures of schools, pubs and shops with many rules currently still in place.

A minute’s silence will be held at midday as part of a day of reflection.

A year on, Mr Johnson has praised the “great spirit” shown since that moment and he offered his condolences to those who have been bereaved during the pandemic.

People are also being encouraged to stand on their doorsteps at 20:00 GMT with phones, candles and torches to signify a “beacon of remembrance”.

It is being organised by end-of-life charity Marie Curie.

  1. The BBC is the enemy of the people and the propaganda mouthpiece the most criminal government in British history.

  2. 5:00 “From March 29 it will be illegal to leave the UK without a ‘valid reason’. If you do that you will get a fine of £5000”.
    And oh look, that’s the same date the vaccine pass review closes what, a, coincidence! Could it be that next we will hear ‘those with proof of vaccination can leave the UK without being fined £5000’? Could they be any less subtle about this?

  3. Paving the way for worse.
