“The intense pressure on the health service is only going to get worse in winter.”

“The health service is at the limit.”

“If we are under more pressure, we will not be able to provide the level of service that people need.”

Separately, the UK business secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, ruled out another winter lockdown.

Kwarteng said: “I would rule that out. Talks about more travel restrictions or more roadblocks are completely useless.”
