Lord Lloyd Webber is among leading figures in entertainment calling for the government to publish the results from Covid pilot events.

Lord Lloyd Webber spoke exclusively to Nick Ferrari on LBC this morning.

The Events Research Programme ran test events at sporting, music and arts venues to assess the safety of large gatherings during the pandemic.

In a statement the group, which also includes musician Peter Gabriel, theatre producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh and music industry trade body Live, accused the Government of "making it impossible to plan for any live entertainment business" by not sharing their findings.

Lord Lloyd Webber has accused the government of "forcing theatre and music companies off a cliff as the summer wears on, whilst cherry-picking high-profile sporting events to go ahead."
