Furlough will be extended until the end of September, the chancellor will announce, as he unveils more support for workers and the self-employed.

Ahead of the budget, Rishi Sunak has revealed that millions of workers will continue to have 80% of their wages paid until the end of September.

More than 600,000 additional people, including many of the self-employed who previously missed out on grants, will also get support.
