The warning came after tougher rules were enforced for nearly six million Britons - including a lockdown in Wales.

The rule of six means that you cannot meet more than six people indoors or outdoors.

But the rules can be even stricter according to what tier you are in. For example, if you are in tier two in England or Wales, you cannot meet people socially indoors if you do not live with them, whether in private homes, pubs or restaurants.
