Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted the UK is “now seeing a second wave coming in” and it was “inevitable” coronavirus would hit the country again.

He was on a visit to the Vaccines Manufacturing Innovation Centre construction site near Oxford when he made the shocking admission.

He told broadcasters: "Obviously, we're looking very carefully at the spread of the pandemic as it evolves over the last few days and there's no question, as I've said for several weeks now, that we could expect (and) are now seeing a second wave coming in.

"We are seeing it in France, in Spain, across Europe – it has been absolutely, I'm afraid, inevitable we were going to see it in this country."
