The UK government is due to make its final assessment on 14 June, a week before all restrictions on social contact are due to end, but if cases continue to increase, it is likely the roadmap could be delayed.

Listed are the 15 areas of England which have the highest rate of Covid-19 cases right now. Figures are based on the number of people who have tested positive for coronavirus in the seven days to 4 June, compared with figures for the previous week up to 28 May.
