Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that further lockdown restrictions will be eased from Monday 17 May. This coincides with England moving from Level Four to Level Three in its alert system.

From next Monday, people can meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors. Six people or two households can meet indoors with overnight stays allowed.

Changes to the rules also mean that up to 30 people can attend weddings, receptions and other significant life events. 

For the leisure industry, restaurants are allowed to serve customers indoors and hotels, hostels and B&Bs can re-open.
