Coronavirus UK LIVE: Boris Johnson returns to work today as lockdown rules set for review and death toll hits – the sun, thesun.co.uk

BORIS Johnson has returned to Downing Street after several weeks off recovering from coronavirus.

The Prime Minister returns to work today.

The PM is already facing demands from his wealthy Tory backers to get the economy back up and running.

These include billionaires Peter Hargreaves, Michael Spencer and Phones4u founder John Caudwell.

Mr Spencer said: “We should start loosening up the lockdown as soon as we reasonably can and allow the economy to start moving forward.

“We should really begin to offer a narrative of how and when it’s going to stop.”

Steve Morgan, the former boss of the housebuilder Redrow, said: “We’re actually in danger that the medicine – if you want to call the lockdown that – is more harmful than the cure.

“I’m strongly in favor of getting the country back to work. This is not about profit; this is about saving the country from going bankrupt, from mass unemployment, from businesses going bust, people losing their livelihoods and homes. ”

Millionaire banker Sir Henry Angest and restaurateur Richard Caring also called for a loosening of restrictions.
