Delay to the final stage of lockdown easing

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson will host a press conference at 6pm this evening where he is expected to announce that the final step of the Roadmap out of lockdown, scheduled to take place at the earliest on 21st June, will be delayed for up to 4 weeks.  

Apparently senior ministers have already signed off on the decision to delay the lifting of all legal restrictions on social contact, meaning that capacity limits for sports, hospitality and cinemas will remain, and nightclubs would stay closed. 

There is some speculation that there may be some concessions, for example there could be a relaxation of the limits on significant life events such as weddings and funerals, but we will only find out the detail at 6pm tonight.
