The husband of NHS Test and Trace chief Baroness Dido Harding has been told to self-isolate by the NHS Covid-19 app

Tory MP John Penrose said he was alerted by the app, part of the operation overseen by his wife.

The Weston-super-Mare MP said on Twitter: "It never rains but it pours… my NHS app has just gone off, telling me to self-isolate, which I'm doing."

Lady Harding has not been told to self-isolate, Mr Penrose said.
