New lockdown restrictions could be in place in England for “six months”

New lockdown restrictions in England, including a 10pm curfew on pubs, could be in place for six months.

In a fresh bid to curb rising Covid-19 infections, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the new rules will become a legal requirement – with the UK reaching a “perilous turning point” in the fight against the disease.

From Thursday, all hospitality, leisure, entertainment and tourism businesses will have to shut from 10pm til 5am. They will also be restricted to table service.
