Some builders and construction workers have said they feel "angry and unprotected" going to work, while others feel under pressure from employers to go in.

Listed housebuilders Persimmon and Bellway confirmed on Wednesday morning they were beginning a phased shutdown of their sites, despite the regulations now allowing them to operate.

"The judgment we have made is that in work, in many instances, the two metre rule can be applied", he said.

Their updates followed the lead of rivals Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Developments who had already announced a suspension of ordinary activity.

On Monday evening, the government announced a recruitment drive for 250,000 volunteers who are in good health and can help vulnerable people.

"We are proud to support the NHS at this important moment and we are certain many thousands of people will selflessly step up to play their parts".

Construction work is now going ahead across the country as long as people are two metres apart from each other, according to health secretary Matt Hancock.

As part of new measures announced on Monday, Hancock told workers to only leave their houses to go out to work "where this is absolutely necessary and can not be done from home".

There have been over 8,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United Kingdom, and 422 deaths, according to the latest Department of Health figures.

But on Tuesday, Mr Hancock said those who can not work from home - including key workers in the NHS and social care - should go to work to "keep the country running".

Sir Iain Duncan Smith and Andy Burnham are among the politicians calling for changes to be made.

London mayor Sadiq Khan's office called for the government to act in order to get more people to stay at home as photos appeared on social media showing busy Tube trains.

Hancock said Tuesday that as many as 11,788 had responded to say they will return to the NHS to assist, including 2,660 doctors, 6,147 nurses, and 2,500 pharmacists and other staff.

"I pay tribute to each and every one of those who is returning to the NHS at its hour of need", Hancock said.

He also said about 5,500 final-year medics and 18,700 final-year student nurses were set to "move to the front line" next week.
