ROADMAP TO STAY: As Boris Johnson plays down impact of Indian variant

 

Boris Johnson has said he is confident that the UK's road out of lockdown can continue as planned, despite concern around the spread of the Indian variant.

The most recent figures suggest cases of the variant are up by 15%, lower than originally feared. Cases in over 60s are not currently rising in any of the areas subject to surge testing outside Bolton.

NEXT AND Spain is to allow visitors from the UK from Monday without the need to provide a negative PCR test - guidelines here mean that the country should not be travelled to unless essential. The holiday destination is on the UK's 'amber' travel list, anyone returning must self-isolate and take two covid tests.

AND FINALLY The Sunday Times have revealed their recent rich list, with wealth rising in lockdown by 22%. Sir Leonard Blavatnik tops the list, whilst footballer Marcus Rashford also makes an appearance.
