Limited outdoor mixing now allowed in England

Home Affairs Correspondent

In England, six people or people from two households can meet outdoors, including in private gardens.

This change follows Wales and Scotland, who already allow four people from up to two households to meet outdoors.

Northern Ireland will allow six people from two households to meet  from Thursday. At the same time as this small taste of social freedom, some amateur sports are also opening up in England for the first time in months.
