Part of UK where pubs are open and social distancing has ended

Birmingham has seen shops re-open across the city as the government continues to gradually ease the ongoing lockdown.

But in one part of the UK, the pubs are open and gatherings of up to 30 people are now permitted.

On the Isle of Man, new lockdown measures have been introduced as they look to kick-start the economy.

The leisure, hospitality and retail sector on the island has been given a much-needed shot in the arm with the latest easing of the lockdown restrictions.

From Tuesday, up to 30 people can gather in outdoor environments, while people can invite up to two people into their homes from one other household.

And the Isle of Man is no longer making shops adhere to social distancing measures, with no limits on the number of customers in shops either.

Hotels are re-opening, alongside gyms, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Drinking spots can open and offer seated service inside with drinks, with Chief Minister Howard Quayle saying that pubs may be fully open by June 29.

In an announcement last week, Mr Quayle said he wanted all remaining restrictions on pubs, clubs, theatres and cinemas, to be removed ‘sooner rather than later’.

The Isle of Man has now gone 25 days in a row with no positive Covid-19 cases, having recorded 24 deaths since March, and 336 cases in total.
