Drupal 8 clean url failing after enabling mod rewrite

Trying to get drupal 8 site working on local lamp server on lubuntu but clean urls failing. Site is currently running on local wamp server without issue.

Lamp stack:

    Apache 2.4.18
    Mysql 5.7.15
    PHP 5.6

Have performed the following steps:

Enabled mod_rewrite:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Added the following lines to /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

    <Directory /var/www/html>
	    AllowOverride All
	    Order Allow,Deny
	    Allow from all

That didn’t work, so added rewrite rules to virtual host, ie apache2.conf, then changed “AllowOverride None” to “AllowOverride All” in three places in apache2.conf just for good measure.

    <Directory /var/www/html/mysite>
         RewriteEngine On
         RewriteBase /
         RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
         RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
         RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]

Not sure how to proceed.
