Boris Johnson will face a grilling from senior MPs amid a warning that the “failure” of the test and trace system is placing “huge pressure” on the health service.

Boris Johnson has announced that, as of 1 August, the government’s advice that anyone who is able should work from home will be relaxed.

From that date, it will be at employers’ discretion whether they allow people to continue working remotely or require them to come back into the office.
