Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed the further easing of Covid restrictions at a Downing Street press conference.

From 17 May, all but the highest risk businesses will reopen.

Indoor hospitality is set to return alongside cinemas, hotels and some larger events with restrictions on capacity.

Meanwhile, the UK's Covid-19 alert level was lowered today from four to three.

The change means that, according to the Government, transmission of the virus is no longer "high" or "rising exponentially".
