Saturday, July 4 will mark the reopening of several key areas of the hospitality sector including pubs, restaurants and cinemas, which have been closed since lockdown began in March.

It is the most significant easing of lockdown and social distancing measures to date but ‘unsettled’ weather conditions could deter some from venturing out.

According to Met Office forecasters, the North East is set for an ‘unsettled but humid weekend with strong winds, spells of occasionally heavy rain and some brightness’.
