A Peterborough man has made an emotional appeal for people to respect lockdown advice and stay home after his cousin died after contracting coronavirus.

Atiq Rehman posted the video on social media last night. In it he said his 30 year old cousin Ali had "an untouchable soul and was always happy, loving and caring". He added " I have lost the light of our home. From all my family we are asking you all look at what we are going through right now and stay at home".
