Health chief warns 'don't socialise before Christmas unless you need to' and Sadiq Khan urges Londoners to 'wear masks in pubs and restaurants' to tackle Omicron as Boris prepares to hold press conference TODAY

The head of NHS Test and Trace today warned Britons not to socialise before Christmas 'unless you need to' in a noticeable shift in tone as the mutant Omicron strain was detected in three more people in Scotland, bringing the UK's total to 14.

Dr Jenny Harries, one of No10's top public health experts, issued the stark warning as she admitted that the mutant could have a 'significant impact on our hospitals' because existing vaccines are expected to be significantly less effective.
