The government has passed all stages of its 329-page emergency bill through the House of Commons.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told MPs the emergency legislation will allow "extraordinary measures" never seen in peace time in the UK.

The bill has cleared the House of Lords, and will become law shortly.
