COVID-19: PM accused of sending 'mixed messages'

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced he will be self-isolating until July 26th after being pinged by the track and trace system. This announcement came hours after he said he would not isolate because he was going to take part in a daily testing scheme.

The PM's U-turn was published in a video on social media, but Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer accuses the Prime Minister of sending 'mixed messages.'

Sky's Jon Craig gives us a closer look.
