Boris Johnson is expected to outline full details of how the UK will exit lockdown on Sunday – three days after the government must review the current restrictions, Sky News is reporting.

Businesses and trade unions spent the weekend in consultation with ministers, looking to establish a strategy for reopening selected areas of the economy.

Ministers have been under pressure to explain their exit strategy but have so far resisted the calls – warning that to do so risks undermining the message to stay at home to prevent the spread of the virus.

On Sunday, Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove said some social distancing measures would remain in place until a vaccine has been developed but added that the government would seek to restore people’s lives to “as close to normal as possible”.
