LIVE: Boris Johnson reveals winter Covid plan despite mum’s sudden & tragic death.

BORIS Johnson will hold a major Covid press conference today despite his mother's tragic sudden death.

The PM will unveil a toolbox of measures for winter to help avoid a seasonal spike in an address to the nation at 3.30pm.

However, he's refused to rule out a further lockdown altogether - warning: "We've got to do everything that's right to protect the country."

The televised address was previously set for 4pm but has been brought forward by 30 minutes.

Boris is set to speak hours after the loss of his mother, professional painter Charlotte Johnson Wahl, who died last night at the age of 79.

It will mark a big day in the fight against Covid - with Brits expected to be told it's time to live alongside the virus.

No10 has previously said reintroducing draconian lockdown restrictions will be a "last resort" only.

Top medics Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance will be beside Mr Johnson for the speech.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid will also speak.

The PM is expected to say he is "dead set" against imposing another lockdown.

Yesterday, he told reporters during a visit to Leicestershire the Government is "very confident" in the steps taken so far.
