Boris Johnson's lockdown roadmap: UK summer back on – total freedom on June 21

Indoor mixing and overnight stays for up to six people will also be allowed again.

Cinemas, hotels and indoor hospitality are also set to re-open, along with the return of some fans to sporting events.

On June 21 the Government is hoping for a return to normal, with no restrictions on attendances to sporting events, or theatre performances.

The Prime Minister has already confirmed the criteria has been met for England to move on to stage one of the roadmap.

Before ministers give the go-ahead for England to move on to any of the next three stages of lifting restrictions, four tests will have to be met.

The Government will look at whether the vaccine rollout is continuing to progress at the current pace, if jabs are effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated, if rates of new cases risk a new surge in hospitalisations and whether there are any worrying new Covid variants.

Striking an optimistic tone the country is nearing the end of the fight against coronavirus, Mr Johnson said: “Today the end really is in sight.

“And a wretched year will give way to a spring and a summer that will be very different and incomparably better than the picture we see around us today.”
