The prime minister has said he hopes it will be safe to reopen schools in England from 8 March, as he told MPs he intends to set out a plan for easing lockdown in the week beginning 22 February, APA reports citing Sky News.

Addressing the Commons, Boris Johnson confirmed pupils will not be returning to the classroom after the February half-term.

"The first sign of normality beginning to return should be pupils going back to their classrooms," the PM said.

"I know how parents and teachers need as much certainty as possible including two weeks' notice of the return of face-to-face teaching.
