Brits won’t have to wear face masks in shops or keep their distance from others after June 21, according to the Sun newspaper.

“The current thinking points to social distancing going and masks only being worn on buses, trains and the Tube,” said a spokesperson. “Obviously this is all depends on a final sign-off but the data is looking good and the political will is there for a proper lift-off.”

Clubbers and festival lovers will be ecstatic if the restrictions on meetings indoors are lifted on Monday, they're champing at the bit to get summer events underway.
