In the next few weeks the UK government will look to create a blueprint and ease restrictions to prepare people to go back to work.

Ministers could put the PM's plans into action in a bid to restart the economy on the Tuesday after the second May bank holiday, reports The Sun.

Mr Johnson said he would be producing a "road map, a menu of options" explaining how to get the economy moving and children back to school while still suppressing the disease's spread.

The government will give offices, factories and shops a two-week head start to begin implementing the new social distancing measures.
