The new restrictions will see people able to meet outside in groups of six and outdoor leisure centres will fully reopen.

Speaking at a UK government press conference, Mr Johnson also warned that the new easing of restrictions will see "more infections and unavoidably more hospitalizations and sadly, more deaths".

A deal has also been reached with pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline to manufacture 60 million doses of its Novavax COVID vaccine in the UK, the prime minister confirmed.
