Coronavirus: Pubs and hairdressers reopen as England’s lockdown eases..

Rollercoaster rides, early morning pints and long barber shop queues – this is how England is emerging after three months of coronavirus lockdown.

Pubs, restaurants, hairdressers, cinemas and theme parks have reopened with strict social distancing rules.

But ministers have urged caution and England’s chief medical officer said the latest step was not “risk-free”.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak welcomed the reopening of businesses, saying it was “good news” people are working again.
