Seven former Governors of Gibraltar have sent a letter to the population expressing their support in the face of the global coronavirus epidemic.

The letter, signed by Lord Luce, Sir David Durie, Sir Francis Richards, Lieutenant General Sir Robert Fulton, Vice Admiral Sir Adrian Johns, Lieutenant General James Dutton and Lieutenant General Edward Davis, said they were urging the UK government to give Gibraltar whatever practical and, where appropriate, financial support it needs to overcome the challenges.

Support has also come from Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who phoned the chief minister on behalf of PM Boris Johnson on Wednesday to reassure Gibraltar: "We are with you".
