Greggs opening more branches today as deaths hit 42,153 and two-metre rule relaxed for firms – The Sun


GREGGS reopens its doors today following weeks of closure due to the coronavirus lockdown.

A third of the chain’s branches – around 800 Greggs stores in total – are reopening on Thursday, June 18 with a reduced menu and customers told to keep apart to maintain social distancing measures.

It comes amidst the much-anticipated return of Premier League football, complete with artificial crowd noises.

Meanwhile Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden last night revealed that gyms and leisure centres will finally be coming back in July at the earliest.

And human trials of a major vaccine begin this week, as Imperial College London’s team tests what they think could be the cure.

It comes as the death toll in the UK from coronavirus rose to 42,153 after 184 more people died yesterday.

Leaders debate climate change on Channel 4 but Boris and Farage give it a miss – The Sun


BORIS RUMBLE AS CORBYN FUMBLES

ALL eyes will be on Boris Johnson today after the Tories’ explosive row with Channel 4.

The PM and Nigel Farage were replaced by ice sculptures in last night’s climate debate.

The Conservatives called that a “provocative, partisan stunt” and accused the broadcaster of bias in an official complaint to the watchdog Ofcom.

Senior Tory Michael Gove offered to stand in for the leader and was filmed arriving at the studio only to be turned away.

Channel 4 News editor Ben de Pear said Jeremy Corbyn and Nicola Sturgeon refused to let him join them in what was billed as a leaders’ debate.

During the discussion, LibDem leader Jo Swinson was forced to defend her air travel to and from her constituency in Scotland – blaming “Victorian trains”.

And Mr Corbyn was challenged about his party’s failure to commit to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Earlier yesterday the Labour leader appeared to forget where he was, saying how much he loved Dorset during a speech in Hampshire.

He also stumbled over the number of trees he pledged to plant as PM, and forgot the name of protest group Extinction Rebellion – calling them “the climate extinction people”.

He has no campaign stops planned today and will also swerve the BBC’s seven-way Question Time debate – which Mr Johnson will also shun.
