Non-essential shops in England are set to open this Monday, after nearly three months of lockdown.

Outdoor attractions like zoos will also be allowed to open as will be places of worship - albeit only for individual prayer.

All sites have to stick to social distancing rules though, which means people have to remain at least six feet (two metres) apart and will be asked to wear face masks when indoors. The same goes for public transport.

Shops in Northern Ireland opened on Friday while Scotland and Wales have not yet decided when to allow their businesses to follow suit.
