Drivers warned that lockdown rules could leave car batteries flat

Drivers who have not driven their car since the UK was put into a coronavirus lockdown could suffer a false start when they next get behind the wheel, a breakdown rescue provider has warned.

The two weeks since Boris Johnson ordered people to avoid non-essential travel is enough time for some car batteries to become flat, according to the RAC.

If this happens, your car will not start and your two main choices are attempting to jump start it yourself or call for breakdown assistance.

Coronavirus: Can your dog or cat get Covid-19 and can you catch it from your pet

There are still no reports of animals in the UK with coronavirus.

On 13 March the World Health Organisation said "at present there is no evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs or cats can be infected with the new coronavirus".

Several global health organisations have issued advisories saying there is no any evidence that pet animals can spread coronavirus or indeed be infected with it in the same way as humans.

“Therefore, there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals which may compromise their welfare,” the World Organisation for Animal Health has said.

Workers to get stipend after April 10

The first payments of a special handout of 800 euros for workers hit by the coronavirus crisis will be made after April 10. The emergency stipend concerns people who are out of work either because their employers were forced to shut down their business by the government or because their contracts have been suspended by enterprises hurt by the pandemic.

Coronavirus: Foreign Office advises against all travel ‘indefinitely’
Previous advice suggested restrictions would be lifted after 15 April

The Foreign Office has changed its restrictions to advise against all non-essential travel “indefinitely”.

The previous travel ban only ran until 16 April, but the advice has now been extended with no end date in sight.

The advice against all non-essential global travel was first put in place on 17 March for an initial period of 30 days.

Some tour operators and airlines are still selling holidays and flights departing not long after the original end date of the restrictions.

For example, Europe’s largest package holiday provider, Tui, is offering a range holidays leaving on 2 May, while easyJet is selling flights departing 1 May.

Sounds as though the proposed local sea-plane service is on hold until 2021, when (if) it arrives it will be in the shape of the twelve seat de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft, now built in Canada by Viking, and the new nineteen seat German built Dornier Seastar.
