Boris Johnson faced questions over the decision to maintain isolation rules until 16 August, a month after so-called freedom day, despite concerns it will lead to millions of vaccinated people having to quarantine.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer asked how many hospitalisations and deaths he expects under the projections of 100,000 daily cases.

Mr Johnson says it is "certainly true we are seeing a wave of case" but says the link has been "severed" between infection and serious disease. He asks if Labour supports "the progress this country is intending to make on July 19."
