Hospitality firms fear for future as three quarters of England under toughest Covid rules

Another 22 million people now living under Tier 4 restrictions, most of England is under virtual lockdown.

All of mainland Scotland or Wales are in their highest tier, level 4, and Northern Ireland is in a six-week national lockdown.

While many beleaguered hospitality businesses face the prospect of keeping their doors shut for the foreseeable future, some outdoor attractions have had better luck.
