Lockdown changes Boris Johnson is expected to announce in roadmap

Boris Johnson is due to set out his roadmap out of lockdown tomorrow, with schools expected to be the first thing that returns when restrictions are eased.

The Prime Minister will outline his roadmap in Parliament in the afternoon, before addressing the nation at a press conference in the evening.

Mr Johnson has said that the process will be "cautious" but with 17.5m people now vaccinated in the UK, calls are growing for a swifter easing of restrictions.

Earlier today Matt Hancock said that there will be "weeks between the steps" so ministers can "watch carefully" the impact of each relaxation of the rules.

Restrictions will be eased step-by-step across the whole of England at the same time, Downing Street said, due to the current uniform spread of the virus.

What changes will be announced

The changes that Mr Johnson will be announcing are not yet fully known, but it's clear that schools and outdoor recreation will be first.

Schools are set to reopen on March 8, with care home residents allowed a regular indoor visitor from the same date under the plans.

Social mixing could be allowed in limited numbers by Easter, at first only two households will be able to meet up outdoors, but a return to the rule of six could also be on the cards.
