Coronavirus: which way to wear a face mask?

Face coverings are being made compulsory for people travelling on public transport in England from 15th June.

This includes buses, trains, aircraft and ferries - all to stop coronavirus from spreading.

Very young children, disabled people and those with breathing difficulties will be exempt, according to the transport secretary, Grant Shapps.
