Photos: Boris Johnson meets scientists fighting coronavirus at lab in north London

Uk's Prime Minister has met scientists at Public Health England as the fight against coronavirus intensifies.

Boris Johnson visited experts who were carrying tests on suspected samples of the infection at a lab in Colindale, north London. The Tory leader was pictured wearing a yellow lab coat as he walked around the centre on Sunday.

The PM then headed to the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead to meet with staff who are treating patients with the virus.

Mr Johnson will chair a Cobra meeting about coronavirus for the first time on Monday as he finalises the steps ministers will take should the outbreak worsen. More photos...
