A shortage of wedding dresses in the UK could be one of the effects of the coronavirus outbreak, MPs have heard.

Labour’s Chris Bryant told the House of Commons how “many wedding dresses in this country are designed in this country but made in China”.

Sky News reports that he described how many wedding dress producers – including those in his Rhondda constituency – have “found it really difficult because the factories have been closed in China” as the country battles to contain the virus.
