    People in England will be able to enjoy a pint or a meal indoors, hug their loved ones and return to cinemas from next week.

    The Prime Minister has said the country will proceed to step three of his roadmap for lifting restrictions from Monday, 17 May.

    It comes as the UK’s COVID alert level was lowered from four to three, meaning coronavirus is in “general circulation” but that transmission isn’t “high or rising exponentially”.
