Pints, meals and haircuts as England's lockdown eased
It is the day England took its first, tentative steps back out to normal life. Out to pubs. Out to restaurants. Out to hairdressers. Out into the, er, overcast, windy English summer. Read how the country emerged from its "long hibernation" with a Super Saturday of reopenings that included pubs, beer gardens, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas.

Landlords fear cross-border pub 'raids' for a drink
It seems fitting that divisions over the approach of each nation of the UK to the coronavirus pandemic should come to be symbolised by the desire for a good drink. With many English pubs now open for the first time since lockdown, the continued closure of their own is expected to lead to cross-border "raids" by drinkers from Wales and Scotland. Patrick Sawer reports on police warnings that they will enforce their own guidelines if drinkers try to sneak a cheeky drink across the border. Read how lockdown rules differ in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
