TUI has announced further holiday cancellations amid growing fears that the Government is planning to delay the lifting of all remaining coronavirus restrictions in England by a month.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce this afternoon that domestic restrictions, including a ban on nightclubs and large events, will stay in place up to 19 July due to rising cases of the Indian variant of coronavirus.

If he does, it seems unlikely that more countries will be added to the UK’s green travel list at the next review on 24 June since the Government has already made it clear it doesn’t want overseas holidays to jeopardise the lifting of restrictions in the UK.

On Thursday, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said international travel must be delayed to avoid ‘screwing up’ the UK recovery from COVID-19.

TUI said on Saturday that the ongoing uncertainty had prompted it to cancel more holidays up to 11 July. Here is a list of the latest cancellations:
