A total of 1,801 people have now died with the virus across the UK, including 367 more in England, 13 in Scotland, seven in Wales and six in Northern Ireland.

Some 28 people, aged from 19 to 91, who died in England did not have underlying health conditions, NHS England said.

BBC News online Health editor Michelle Roberts said Tuesday's increase was "not unexpected and does not suggest things are spiralling out of control".
