It comes as England has less than one week left of the second lockdown to contend with.

Police were seen at King's Cross in central London arresting protesters this morning.

One man was arrested and put into a van at the ‘Our Movement’ demonstration where they were protesting against the lockdown, the Covid vaccine and wearing masks.

Yesterday, the number of UK coronavirus cases has today dropped by 21 per cent in a week - with 521 more deaths reported in the last 24 hours.

The figure is down by a fifth on last Friday’s rise (20,252) and follows a recent trend of infections slowing.

It brings the total number of positive test results in Britain to 1,574,562.

The Department of Health revealed today it had removed 1,283 historic cases from that figure as they were "originally reported in error by the laboratory as positive".

Another 521 more fatalities were confirmed, raising the total number of Covid deaths in Britain to 57,551.

Today's rise in deaths is almost identical - although slightly bigger - than last week's jump (511).

It is bigger still, than the Friday before that (376).

Last week, hundreds of angry anti-lockdown protesters chanting "freedom" clashed with cops.
