There is no evidence sunbathers risk spreading coronavirus infection and ministers should ‘call off the dogs’, a government adviser said today.

Prof Robert Dingwall, a sociologist, said there was no problem with enjoying spring weather as long as people obey ‘social distancing’.

He also criticised the ‘all or nothing’ strategy being pushed by the government, suggesting it has overplayed the dangers of transmission outdoors.

The comments come with ministers wrangling over how and when to lift the lockdown.
