The camps at Skegness, Minehead and Bognor Regis were already closed after restrictions were introduced last month.

A spokesman said: “It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the closure of Butlin’s until 14 May. Our focus has always been to give our guests a fun and entertaining holiday, so it is with much sadness that we’ve had to make this decision.

“We are all facing unprecedented times - every person, every kind of work is affected. We will get through this and back to providing great holidays for you all. For now, we want to give you as much reassurance and remove any uncertainty you have for your holiday in this period.
