UK social distancing rules - one metre or two metres?

The UK government is advising people to practise social distancing, but the distance varies depending on where you live.

In Scotland and England, you are now allowed to socially distance at 'one metre plus', but the advice is still to stick to two metres where you can, to protect yourself from catching coronavirus.

In Wales, the advice is to always stick to two metres but in Northern Ireland, one metre social distancing is allowed.

But it can be hard to know exactly what that looks like.

The BBC's health correspondent Laura Foster helps explain the best ways to keep safe and keep the correct distance away from other people.
