BORIS Johnson will deliver a plan to ease out of lockdown in England on Sunday night at 7pm, it was revealed today.

The PM said yesterday that he will speak at the weekend about the future measures, with the hope of changing some as early as Monday.

The Government will continue getting all the latest scientific information over the weekend before making any tweaks.

Another Cabinet meeting may also take place beforehand.

The PM’s address is expected to be the form of a video message – similar to the one he released when he announced the lockdown on March 23.

Dominic Raab is expected to reveal at tonight’s press conference that nothing will change in the next few days, but the lockdown measures will formally be extended.

And he will tip the public to watch Boris Johnson’s address for new information.

The Sun revealed today that Brits are set to be told they can go out to exercise as much as they want, and to be allowed to go to sunbathe in parks from next week.

No major changes to the nationwide lockdown are expected, however.

But this afternoon Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that the controls will continue to stay strict north of the border.



She confirmed another three weeks of lockdown, and insisted it was too soon to consider any measures to be eased.

And Wales – which also has a higher rate of infection than England – will also stick closely to the lockdown rules.

It means the measures will likely be different from next week in England – compared to Scotland and Wales, and will risk confusing the public.
