Coronavirus: England lockdown easing 'biggest step yet', says PM

The easing of lockdown rules in England is the "biggest step yet on the road to recovery", the prime minister has said.

Many businesses - including pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas - can reopen from Saturday, BBC reported.

Boris Johnson said the public "must not let them down" by being complacent about social distancing, and he would "not hesitate" to reimpose restrictions if the number of Covid-19 cases rises.

"Targeted local" measures would replace "blanket national" ones, he said.
