BREAKING Boris Johnson warns COVID-19 lockdown will NOT end on June 21 unless cases & deaths plunge.

BRITAIN'S coronavirus lockdown will NOT end on June 21 unless cases and deaths continue to fall, Boris Johnson warned on Tuesday.

After yesterday outlining plans for schools to reopen and pubs and restaurants to welcome back guests over the coming months, the Prime Minister today warned that absolutely nothing was "guaranteed".

Speaking at a south London school this morning, the PM said he remains "very optimistic" all lockdown measures will be lifted by summer but insisted that "obviously, nothing can be guaranteed".

The news comes amid a huge surge in foreign holiday bookings after Boris Johnson announced his lockdown roadmap yesterday.

Airlines and travel firms are experiencing a surge in demand despite an international travel ban in place until at least May 17.

Hours after the Prime Minister's announcement yesterday, easyJet said bookings by UK customers for the summer season were more than four times higher compared with the same period during the previous week.

The most popular destinations for this summer are beach resorts including Malaga, Alicante and Palma in Spain, Faro in Portugal and the Greek island of Crete.
