The Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is self-isolating at home after a member of his family member showed “possible symptoms” of Covid-19.

He will remain in quarantine until the results of a test of that person comes back, a spokesman has confirmed.

Sir Keir is believed to have been notified of the situation soon after his appliance on an LBC phone-in this morning and returned to his house.

He is not showing any symptoms himself, but his office has alerted the broadcaster about the situation.

And he will now not be appearing in the House of Commons today while MPs debate the controversial Internal Market bill.

A spokesman for the Labour leader said: “This morning Keir Starmer was advised to self isolate after a member of his household showed possible symptoms of the coronavirus.

"The member of his household has now had a test. In line with NHS guidelines, Keir will self-isolate while awaiting the results of the test and further advice from medical professionals.”
