BORIS Johnson has eased lockdown measures further, revealing groups of six can meet in parks and gardens from Monday.
Speaking in today’s daily coronavirus briefing, the Prime Minister said the latest changes would allow friends and families to see each other for the first time in months, giving Brits a new lease of freedom.
The PM said: “We will now allow people to meet in gardens and other outdoor spaces. This means friends and families can now see their loved ones.
“I know for many this will be a long awaited and joyful moment.”
It comes after the Government launched its test and trace system today, hoping to provide more information on how the killer bug is spreading, especially as the restrictions are easing.
Meanwhile, the total UK death toll from the coronavirus reached 37,837 on Thursday after with 377 more deaths confirmed in the last 24 hours.
