Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said he has been told to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
Sir Keir wrote on Twitter: "This morning I was notified that I must self isolate after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
"I have no symptoms and will be working from home until next Monday."
The former director of public prosecutions was previously forced to quarantine in both September and December.
Last month, he had to stay at home after a member of his private office staff tested positive for coronavirus.
