A doctor and nurse who had to cancel their wedding due to the coronavirus outbreak have got married at the hospital where they work.
Mr Annalan Navaratnam, 30, and Jann Tipping, 34, tied the knot in the Grade II listed chapel at London’s St Thomas’ Hospital.

The couple said they decided to hold it “while everyone was still healthy”.
Ms Jann Tipping and Mr Annalan Navaratnam, had cancelled their original plans to wed in August because they feared their families would not be able to travel safely from Northern Ireland and Sri Lanka for the day.
Instead, the couple, from Tulse Hill in south London, decided to bring the wedding forward and got a special go-ahead for a private wedding ceremony.
Ms Jann Tipping, an ambulatory emergency nurse, said they “wanted to make sure we could celebrate while we were all still able to even if it meant our loved ones having to watch us on a screen”.
She described the wedding on 24 April as “intimate” and “lovely”, but added it felt “surreal” getting married where they both work.
