Health Secretary Matt Hancock has issued a sex warning following the latest update to other coronavirus rules across the UK.

Mr Hancock was speaking on the day new rules around socialising come into force in England.

Similar rules are also being applied by the UK nations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Mr Hancock said people needed to “be careful” when it came to having sexual relationships outside of “established relationships” during the pandemic.

Asked about the Government’s guidance that only “established” couples should be having sex, he told Sky News: “In these rules that we have to bring in, there have to be boundaries, to coin a phrase.

“If you’re saying that two households shouldn’t mix, which we are in some parts of the country – in the North East, the North West, in Scotland, in parts of Wales – then you have to then define what is the boundary of that.”

He added: “I think we should stick to the letter of it, which is it is okay in an established relationship.

“It just means that people need to be careful, they need to be sensible.

“If you’re in a relationship that is well established… what it means is people realising that coming into close contact with people from other households, then that is how the virus spreads.”

Mr Hancock joked that “I know I am in an established relationship” with his wife.
