Six new coronavirus deaths have been recorded at the Gloucestershire Hospitals Trust in the past 24 hours, the latest official figures show.

It comes as Downing Street announced that lockdown measures will be reviewed around the three-week mark next Monday.

NHS England figures show 52 people had died in hospital at the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as of 5pm on Tuesday.

That was an increase of six compared to Monday, when there were 46.

Of the 21 trusts across the South West, the Gloucestershire Hospitals trust has the ​highest death toll.

Across England, the death toll hit 6,483 on Tuesday, up from 5,655.

Official figures show that 38 more cases of coronavirus have been recorded in Gloucestershire in the past 24 hours.

402 people in Gloucestershire had been confirmed as testing positive for Covid-19 by 9am Wednesday morning.

Separate figures from the Department of Health and Social Care show 60,733 people had tested positive for Covid-19 across the UK, up from 55,242 on Tuesday.

Lockdown measures will be reviewed around the three-week mark on Monday, Downing Street has said, as warnings mounted that it will be too early to ease the restrictions to combat Covid-19.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan echoed ministers in saying the capital is "nowhere near" being able to ease measures, as the World Health Organisation warned leaders to be "very careful".

Boris Johnson, who remains in a stable condition in intensive care, had committed to review if the measures could be eased on Monday, three weeks after he imposed the conditions.

But there had been confusion after Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is deputising for the PM, refused to directly answer questions on when it would take place.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman clarified on Wednesday that the review would take place "on or around" the three-week mark as he urged the public to "stick with it" at this critical time.

He highlighted the Government's key advisers having made clear it was too early to say when the coronavirus pandemic would reach its peak and it would be safe to ease the restrictions imposed on March 23.
