Gove: 'Three households can have a Christmas bubble'

Up to three households can meet indoors during a five-day Christmas period of 23-27 December, leaders of the four UK nations have agreed.

"People will be allowed to have a Christmas bubble, and that means that three households can get together," Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove said.

"All the governments agreed that we should balance the need to protect public health, while also allowing people to be with their loved ones."
