The government will unveil its first Budget later amid continued pressure from the coronavirus outbreak.

The new Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, will present the fiscal plans in the Commons at 12:30 GMT, less than a month after taking over the Treasury.

Some elements have already been revealed, including more than £600bn for infrastructure projects over five years and extra money for potholes.

But the economic challenge posed by the virus is still expected to dominate.

The number of coronavirus cases in the UK reached 382 on Tuesday, a rise of 63 since the previous day, with a sixth person confirmed to have died from the virus.

Mr Sunak has said the NHS will get “whatever resources it needs” during the crisis and that he is looking at extra financial help for individuals and businesses who are left out of pocket.
