Religious groups in England have strongly criticised the new lockdown rule banning communal worship.

England’s four-week lockdown will see most religious services banned. Funerals will still be allowed, with a maximum of 30 attending.

The Catholic Church described the ban as a cause of “anguish” and demanded the government gives its reasons for stopping services.

The Muslim Council of Britain called for an urgent review of restrictions.
