The health secretary says he “very much hopes” the 2m social distancing rule in England could be reduced to 1m this week with “mitigations”.

Matt Hancock said measures could be put in place so people could be closer without a higher risk of transmission.

Labour said it would support the change to 1m “under certain circumstances”.

Mr Hancock confirmed new easing of lockdown measures would be announced in the coming days, including whether pubs and restaurants can re-open on 4 July.
