Restaurants and pubs will, if all four of the government's tests are met, be allowed to serve customers outdoors from April 12.

A month later, from May 17, they will be able to serve indoors, with the government hoping to scrap all regulations on socialising from June 21.

Since the roadmap was announced on Monday, businesses across the region have been preparing to reopen.
