LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson will set out the next steps on easing Britain’s coronavirus lockdown on Thursday, describing what will be possible from June 1, his spokesman said.

Britain is poised to start relaxing measures and possibly allowing more social contact soon for millions of people who have been mostly stuck at home for weeks.

“The PM will be setting out later on what we will be able to do from June 1,” the spokesman told reporters.
