Coronavirus: Army delivers protective equipment to NHS staff

The British Army has delivered masks and other protective equipment to St Thomas' Hospital in London amidst concerns from NHS staff that there are shortages.

Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, has acknowledged that there are "challenges" with the supply of equipment, but added he is determined to improve the situation.
