We brought you live updates on the Covid-19 pandemic from day 12 of lockdown in the UK.

It might feel like it's been longer but it's only the second weekend since Boris Johnson ordered the country to stay at home.

It was revealed that another 144 people have died after testing positive for the virus in the Black Country and Birmingham as the UK death toll passed 4,300.

Among the latest victims were Dudley teacher Kate Fox and Walsall Manor nurse Areema Nasreen who have both been warmly remembered over the last few days.

Meanwhile tributes have also been pouring in for two well-known and respected bishops from Wolverhampton who died within 24 hours of each other.

We'll be back bringing you the latest on Sunday.
