Tube trains in London continued to be packed on Monday morning amid reports that a coronavirus curfew in the capital is “inevitable”.

Boris Johnson has threatened to introduce tougher measures to fight the spread of coronavirus as commuters squeezed into busy underground trains.

A total of 281 people have died in the UK after contracting the virus, figures released on Sunday revealed.

Reports say a curfew in London is “inevitable” if people in the capital continue to ignore official advice on social distancing.

Parks across London were packed at the weekend and the Tube remained busy during rush hour on Monday morning.

The Times newspaper quoted a senior government source as saying a curfew in the capital is “inevitable”.

On Monday, health secretary Matt Hancock said people who have ignored government advice on social distancing have been “very selfish”.

On Sunday, the prime minister said people needed to act “responsibly” by practising social distancing.

He said: “If we can't do that then I'm afraid we're going to have to bring forward tougher measures."

In London, mayor Sadiq Khan has been criticised for reducing the Tube service, which critics say means busier trains and the potential for further spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.
