    Watch a live broadcast from London where outdoor dining is reopening for restaurants and pubs on Monday, 12 April.

    Under government rules, outdoor gatherings will still be limited to six people from now more than two households, while socialising indoors is possible for people who belong to the same household or the so-called "support bubble."

    The next easing of the COVID-related restrictions is planned as part of "Step Three" on 17 May.
