UK begins easing lockdown in COVID-19 hotspot Leicester

LONDON, July 16 (Reuters) - The British government on Thursday eased lockdown restrictions imposed upon the COVID-19 hotspot of Leicester, but said the English city was still suffering above-average infection rates and some restrictions must remain.

“We’re now in a position to relax some, but not all of the restrictions that were in place,” Hancock said.

The situation would be reviewed again in two weeks, he added. (Reporting by Paul Sandle, writing by William James)
