    Boris Johnson is poised to sign off plans to delay the lifting of coronavirus lockdown restrictions in England, amid growing concerns about the surge in case of the highly transmissible Delta variant.

    The Prime Minister is expected to agree to put the final easing of controls on hold for up to four weeks when he meets senior ministers and officials on his return on Sunday from the G7 summit.

    It could mean that lockdown lifting in England – which had been slated for June 21 under the government’s road map – will be put back to July 19.

    Over the weekend, the PM signalled to ITV News there will be a four-week delay to ending lockdown in England, amid rising hospitalisations among people who have the virus.
