LOCKDOWN LATEST

-

AS First News went to press, the Government hadn’t said too much about the end of lockdown.

According to reports earlier this week, the prime minister Boris Johnson will reveal on Sunday 10 May how we’ll be leaving lockdown.

The news came after the PM announced that we had “passed the peak,” and that cases had begun to fall.

Until now, Government officials have decided not to explain their ‘exit strategy’, as they say that doing so would make the message to stay at home less effective.

Labour leader Keir Starmer said that his party agreed the lockdown “needs to remain in place, but to maintain morale and hope, people need a sense of what comes next”.
