Boris Johnson and his fiancée Carrie Symonds led the nation in its weekly tribute to the thousands of NHS staff and healthcare workers putting their lives at risk in the fight against coronavirus.

Clap for Carers is now in its eighth week and sees communities gather at windows, on balconies and pavements to give those on the Covid-19 frontline a round of applause.

The Prime Minister's partner, who gave birth to their son Wilfred earlier this month, joined in with the event on Thursday outside 10 Downing Street.

Ms Symonds beamed with joy as she stood next to Mr Johnson and led the outpouring of support for the essential workers helping fight the pandemic. It was the first time they were seen together since the birth of their son, Wilfred, at the end of April.
