Coronavirus lockdown: ‘No dramatic overnight change’ to restrictions

The public has to be “realistic” about loosening of lockdown restrictions, the environment secretary has said.

George Eustice also urged the public to abide by the current measures over the weekend, with Boris Johnson due to deliver an update on Sunday.

It comes after Wales announced “modest” changes from Monday – allowing people to exercise outside more often.

Mr Eustice also announced a £16m fund to deliver millions of meals to those struggling during the pandemic.

A further 626 coronavirus deaths were confirmed on Friday, taking the UK total to 31,241, including a six-week-old baby with an underlying health condition.
