Hotels, hostels and B&Bs will reopen next Monday

Hotels, hostels and B&Bs in England will reopen from May 17, the prime minister has announced.

From next Monday, guests will have more choice in booking domestic holidays as they are welcomed back to hotels for the first time since January.

Currently, travellers can only go on trips to self-contained accommodation such as camp sites and holiday homes in their household or bubble.

Boris Johnson also announced that indoor mixing will be allowed again from the same date, meaning people can travel and stay overnight with people outside of their household.

Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own rules in place for when hotels can welcome back customers.

In Scotland, hotels and B&Bs reopened on April 26 but they will not reopen until at least May 17 in Wales.

Northern Ireland expects to give hotels the green light from May 24.
