    The country is “on track” to reopen as planned on July 19, the Health Secretary has said, but strict border controls may remain in place to “protect the amazing progress” of our vaccination programme.

    Matt Hancock told Sky News that due to the UK’s successful vaccination rollout, which has seen 78.4 per cent of the population receive a first dose to date, the country is “on track to deliver Step 4 – the further openings – on July 19, which is good”.

    He said that the Government is looking to replace the restrictions currently in place at home with “protections that come from the vaccine”, however he added that “it is more difficult freeing up international travel”.
