EASYJET has announced it could close its Stansted, Southend, and Newcastle hubs.

The budget airline is also expected to sack 4,500 staff but flights are not likely to be impacted before August, as hubs won’t be removed before then.

On Tuesday, Boris Johnson laid out the government’s plan to ensure the UK recovers from Covid-19 in his Dudley speech.

The Prime Minister revealed his intent to bring forward £5 billion capital investment projects, supporting jobs and the economic recovery.

Meanwhile, the city of Leicester WILL stay in lockdown the Health Secretary confirmed.

No 10 had been concerned about a recent spike in cases in the area, with questions raised about a second shutdown.

Now, the coronavirus death toll in the UK stands at 43,730 and the global toll reaches half a million.
