Facebook has taken down the official page of conspiracy theorist David Icke for publishing "health misinformation that could cause physical harm". Mr Icke has made several false claims about coronavirus, such as suggesting 5G mobile phone networks are linked to the spread of the virus.

Facebook said in a statement: "We have removed this Page for repeatedly violating our policies on harmful misinformation''.
