A NURSE forced to cancel her wedding spent what would have been the big day treating coronavirus patients.

Olivia Hall 29, had been due to marry her partner Alex Violaris, 30, on Saturday but found herself in the thick of a shift at University College London Hospital near Euston.

The couple, who are living apart to avoid any risk of spreading the disease, have postponed their wedding and honeymoon until October.

Thousands of couples across the country have had to rearrange Spring wedding plans after the lockdown was confirmed at the end of March, including Camden Council leader Georgia Gould, who had been due to marry her partner later this month.
