Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been told the nation could leave lockdown a MONTH early.

The PM is being urged to mull over potentially easing lockdown measures and restrictions amid plummeting infections, deaths and cases.

With the vaccination programme continuing at a pace, the PM is facing a rebellion from Tory MPs.

Mr Johnson is facing calls to lift lockdown earlier – but he's insisted on sticking to his road map.

Under his current plan, the rule of six will return next week (March 29) before non-essential retail reopens on April 12.

The hospitality sector can also return for outdoor purposes on April 12.

May 17 will bring with it the chance to mix indoors for families and friends, and June is pencilled in as the date all restrictions will lift.

Christopher Snowdon, Head of Lifestyle Economics at free market think tank the Institute of Economic Affairs, said: "Even if the vaccination programme slows down next month, we are in a far better place than anybody expected in January.

"The data continues to exceed expectations, but the dates in the government’s sluggish roadmap never move.

“Every extra day of lockdown produces diminishing returns and mounting costs.

Waiting another two months for hospitality to reopen seems excessive when people will be meeting in their homes regardless of government diktats.

“We should keep a watchful eye on the data, but we should not stick stubbornly to an arbitrary timetable.

There is now a strong case for bringing the roadmap forward by four weeks.”

Conservative former minister Steve Baker described the Coronavirus Act as "excessive and disproportionate", and it "should now go".

Mr Baker said he believes this would not put the furlough scheme at risk, saying this had been confirmed by the House of Commons Library, telling Sky News: "The Government really does need to start taking advantage of their own great success on the vaccination programme."

What can you do from March 29 as lockdown restrictions ease? What will the new lockdown rules be? Here’s the latest on England’s roadmap plan.

The roadmap out of lockdown in England is approaching it’s second part on 29th March with some more coronavirus restrictions being lifted as well as the reintroduction of the rule of six.

Ahead of the 12th April – where the biggest set of lockdown restrictions are due to be lifted – the government will be removing another set of rules as they help England gradually return to normal outside of lockdown.

So what can you do from 29th March? What is the rule of six? Here’s what lockdown restrictions are being lifted as part of the roadmap should the government go ahead:

The second stage of part one of the roadmap out of lockdown means a few small restrictions will be eased to help control any further spread of the virus.

If the government is happy all four tests are met, from 29th March residents in England should be able to:

Up to six people, or two households, are now allowed to mix outdoors again.

Support bubbles are counted as one household and any children under the age of five are not included in the head count.

This also means private garden meets are allowed again.

The 12th April is step 2 of the roadmap out of lockdown and has some of the biggest rule liftings.

From this date, England can hopefully see one of the biggest returns to ‘normal life’ with non-essential shops, hairdressers and barbers and gyms reopening.

Outdoor dining and drinking should also be permitted along with self-catering holidays in the UK opening for business once more.

Around one week before these lockdown restrictions are lifted, Boris Johnson and the government will assess Covid data and deem if this is safe to do so.
