The UK has recorded its lowest daily rise in the number of Coronavirus deaths since before lockdown on 23 March, the latest government figures show.
A further 55 people died after testing positive with the virus as of 17:00 BST on Sunday, taking the total to 40,597.
This included no new deaths announced in both Scotland and Northern Ireland for the second consecutive day.
However, there tend to be fewer deaths reported on Mondays, due to a reporting lag over the weekend.
The number of new UK cases on Monday – 1,205 – is also the lowest number since the start of lockdown.
On the day lockdown began, 23 March, there was a rise of 74 deaths.
The UK is only the second country – after the US – to pass the milestone of 40,000 deaths.
