Boris Johnson has confirmed that Step Four of the Government's road map out of lockdown will go ahead as planned next Monday.

Nightclubs will be encouraged to use vaccine passports for entry, while face masks will be ‘expected and recommended’ on public transport.

It comes as case rates continue to rise across most of the country, including in Leeds

Leeds recorded 4,328 new cases in the seven days to July 7, a rate of 545.7 per 100,000 people. It's up 28.9 per cent from the previous week.
