DUP wary as Boris Johnson eyes return to normality by autumn

The DUP gave a cautious response after Prime Minister Boris Johnson said life in the UK could significantly return to normal by late autumn "at the earliest" with any outstanding lockdown restrictions reviewed at that stage.

The Prime Minister yesterday at a Downing Street press conference announced new measures to tackle the pandemic and further ease restrictions in England.

These include indoor performances with live audiences resuming from August 1 in the region, with trials beginning for sports stadiums, with supporter and spectators in attendance, to reopen from October.
