BRITS have been told summer holidays abroad are ‘very likely’ to be cancelled this year over coronavirus.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock broke the devastating news during an appearance on ITV’s This Morning today.

Hancock said: ” “I think that’s likely to be the case.
“I think it’s unlikely that big lavish international holidays are going to be possible for this summer.”
