Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 12:11pm 28th April 2020. (Updated at 12:15pm 28th April 2020)

A minute's silence has been held to commemorate the key workers who have died with coronavirus.

Surrey and Hampshire fell silent at 11am with flags also lowered in tribute to those who have passed away.

The deaths of more than 90 frontline NHS workers have been confirmed across the UK and those in other key sectors, such as private social care and transport, have also died.

Among those to have lost their lives with the virus is a Surrey nursing assistant, Ruben Munoz, who was described as  "a good son, a beloved husband and an amazing father".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who returned to work on Monday, joined the tribute in Downing Street.
