Covid: Health secretary Matt Hancock self-isolating after app alert

US Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said he is self-isolating after being alerted by the UK's NHS Covid-19 app.

The West Suffolk MP said self-isolation was "perhaps the most important part of all the social distancing" and urged others to do the same if contacted.

In a tweet, Mr Hancock said he would be working from home until Sunday, adding "we all have a part to play in getting this virus under control".

He contracted coronavirus in March 2020 and suffered "mild symptoms".
