Coronavirus news UK LIVE –BORIS Johnson set to announce June 21 lockdown lifting will be DELAYED by FOUR weeks

BORIS Johnson will make a major announcement on Monday that June 21’s lockdown lifting will be delayed until July 19, The Sun can reveal.

A two-week review will be included meaning coronavirus restrictions could be dropped on July 5 if hospitalisations stay down.

But sources told The Sun the chances of lifting restrictions as planned on June 21 were close to zero due to a 240 per cent surge in the Indian strain, now known as the Delta variant.

This is a huge blow to Wembley’s hosting of some crucial Euros matches.

Group games will have a 25 per cent stadium cap – 22,500 fans – with that hopefully rising to around 45,000 people for the Semis and the July 11 Final.
