The number of deaths from coronavirus in the UK has risen to 335. 

It means there has been an increase of 54 since yesterday, 46 of which were in England. 

The figures come after Dorset saw its first death as a result of the virus. 

A woman, aged 72, died from coronavirus at Dorset County Hospital on Saturday, the hospital confirmed yesterday. 

Today, council chiefs have made a passionate plea for visitors and second home owners to stay away from tourist hotspots in Dorset to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
