The Government’s new £2.6m White House-style briefing room was used for the first time today when Prime Minister Boris Johsnon held a Coronavirus press conference this afternoon.

The briefing room has been built inside number 9 Downing Street at a cost of £2.6m, and will eventually be used to televise daily press briefings which currently take place behind closed doors.
