‘Freedom Day’ delayed by four weeks due to concerns of Delta virus

Step 4 of the lifting of restrictions will be delayed by up to four weeks and the vaccination programme accelerated to respond to the rapid spread of the Delta variant, the Prime Minister has confirmed.

The Roadmap has always been led by data and not dates, and the government has said its four tests have not been met. In order to offer two vaccine doses to more people, prevent thousands of unnecessary deaths and protect the NHS, Step 4 will be delayed by up to four weeks to Monday 19 July.

Many businesses and people have taken to social media reacting to the announcement. Here is what the borough has been saying.
