Family and friends will be allowed from next week as long as people use their common sense, it has been reported.

Boris Johnson yesterday announced that loved ones not from the same household can legally embrace one another from May 17 – provided infections remain low ahead of that key lockdown date.

Mr Johnson is likely to say that everyone should use their “personal judgment” and their “common sense” when it comes to hugging friends and family after May 17, the Sunday Telegraph reports.

Downing Street have played down but not denied the reports – pointing to a social distancing review but stressing that no decisions have been made and when they were they would be data driven.
