Fines of up to £10,000 for failing to self-isolate Tory rebellion over emergency Covid powers Mapped: Virus increasing in most areas except these four locations PM's Covid options to tackle second wave Businesses back airport testing to replace quarantine Subscribe to The Telegraph Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, has said meetings are happening today to discuss new coronavirus restrictions in London. “I’ve had discussions this week with the Mayor of London and the teams are meeting today to discuss further what might be needed," he told Sky News. He warned the Government will impose fresh national coronavirus restrictions if the public fails to follow the existing rules and that he was "very worried" about the second wave of the virus now emerging in the UK. "The nation faces a tipping point," he told the Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme. "We have a choice. Either everybody follows the rules - the rule of six and the need to self-isolate if you have a positive test or if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace - or we will have to take more measures. "I don't want to see more measures, more restrictive measures, but if people don't follow the rules that is how the virus spreads." His comments came as the Government announced people in England will face fines of up to £10,000 if they refuse an order to self-isolate. Mr Hancock said: "We will support people who do the right thing and we will come down hard on people who do the wrong thing." Follow the latest updates below.

The bump down to reality after a blissful holiday is never pleasant, but it’s infinitely more miserable when your neighbours have texted to forewarn you of a “tagging spree” around your street. A particularly enterprising group of emerging artists had daubed our pretty south London neighbourhood in graffiti, generously including one neighbour’s car in their pop-up exhibit. Instead of dreamy Amalfi Coast vistas and paintbox Positano, it was back to some particularly gritty scenes and a clean-up operation. It wasn’t so much of a bump as a crash landing. So forgive me for greeting the news with enthuasiam that Prince Charles’s pet project, the Nansledan housing development in Cornwall, comes with some draconian neighbourhood rules. There’s a lengthy 85 of them, to be exact, about what you can and can’t do around your home. These include a ban on visible washing lines, flag flying, ball games, satellite dishes, plastic blinds, caravans, external drain pipes, slamming doors and public drunkenness. The houses are painted in shades to evoke a quaint Cornish seaside, and there are strict rules about what colours are allowed. Bins must be left outside on the day of collection only. House numbers must be placed in a certain way and caravans and satellite dishes aren’t allowed. Where do I sign up?
