UK holds one minute's silence for key workers who died (Watch)

A minute’s silence has been held across the UK to commemorate the key workers who have died with coronavirus.

People across the UK paused for a minute in sombre tribute to the sacrifice made by those on the front line, in roles ranging from doctors and nurses to carers, cleaners, porters and bus drivers.

Heartbreaking pictures show nurses wiping away tears after gathering outside to pay tribute to colleagues who died from the killer bug.

One nurse broke down in tears as fellow hero workers took part in the minute’s silence outside Salford Royal Hospital in Manchester.

Others gathered outside hospitals in Bolton, Liverpool, Bolton Glasgow, Derby and London this morning.

Mr Johnson said: “This morning I took part in a minute’s silence to remember those workers who have tragically died in the coronavirus pandemic. The nation will not forget you.”

More than 90 NHS and social care workers have died during the pandemic.
