Step three of the 'roadmap' out of lockdown is set to take place this month.

The next step toward ending lockdown on June 21 will see indoor venues being able to open their doors.

Step 3 of the Prime Ministers 'roadmap' was finalised last night by Boris Johnson and will take place on May 17.

The move to the next stage of the road map out of lockdown on May 17 came as the Covid-19 alert level in the UK was downgraded after a "consistent" fall in cases, hospital admissions and deaths.

The Prime Minister set out a new approach to tackling the virus, giving people greater responsibility for their own choices on whether to observe social distancing with friends and family.

"Today we are taking a step towards that moment when we learn to live responsibly with Covid, when we cease eventually to rely on detailed Government edicts and make our own decisions," he said.

But what restrictions will be eased on this date?

- People will be able to meet outdoors in groups of up to 30.

- People will be able to meet indoors in groups of six, or two households.

- Pubs and restaurants will be able to serve customers indoors, although they will be limited to table service.

- Cinemas, museums, theatres and concert halls will be allowed to reopen although there will be capacity limits on large events.

- The "stay in the UK" restriction will lift and people will be able to travel to "green list" countries such as Portugal, although they are still being advised not to go to destinations on the amber list.

- Up to 30 people will be allowed at weddings, although dancing will still not be allowed, and the cap on the number of mourners attending funerals will be lifted, in line with the safe capacity of the venue.

- Secondary school pupils will no longer be told to wear face masks in class and communal areas.

- University students will return to campus for in-person lectures.

Step 4 of the easing of lockdown is expected no earlier than June 21.

This will see all restrictions completely lifted.

What restrictions will be eased?

It is hoped all legal limits on social contact can be removed.

The government hope to reopen nightclubs, and lift restrictions on large events and performances that apply in Step 3.

This will also guide decisions on whether all limits can be removed on weddings and other life events.

The latest restrictions were eased on April 12.
