Trade unions have criticised the Government's decision to press on with measures to get people back into the office, despite putting the brakes on other lockdown easing plans.

Under the new guidance, which came into force on August 1, employers can now ask their staff to return to the office if they have implemented coronavirus-control measures.

Previously the Government had been asking everyone to work from home where possible.

The guidance state that even those deemed "extremely clinically vulnerable" to the virus can be asked to return to work if they cannot work from home.

It advises vulnerable individuals be offered the "safest available on-site roles" or temporarily adjusted working patterns.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "For a lot of people working from home does work, but if employers and employees think that you need to get into the office to be more productive, that is a very, very important consideration."

Monday is the first working day the rules have been in place.

Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, three men have been jailed for drugs offences.
Thomas Cummings, aged 28, Reece Cummings, aged 25 and Richard Haywood, aged 54, all of no fixed abode were jailed at Reading Crown Court on Friday 24 July.  

Thomas Cummings was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment, while Reece Cummings and Haywood were jailed for 27 months each.
They all pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, namely cocaine and heroin.
The convictions relate to an incident at 1.30pm on 9 January 2020, following a vehicle stop by officers in Clarence Road in Windsor. They were found to be in possession of class A drugs, cash and phones.

All three were arrested on the same day and then charged on the next day, 10 January.

Investigating officer, PC Tom Hughes-Parry, of the Problem Solving Team in Maidenhead, said: “Richard Haywood is the father of Reece and Thomas Cummings who were a criminal family involved in distributing Class A drugs into Windsor and spreading misery into the local area.
“This was an excellent stop by officers, and the three of them were caught red handed dealing drugs to vulnerable adults in Windsor – this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated in Windsor and I am glad they will not be able to cause any more issues.

“Through our Stronghold campaign Thames Valley Police will continue to work in partnership to tackle serious organised crime and to stop those who seek to exploit vulnerable people for their own means.”

There are currently no plans to shut pubs after a rise in coronavirus transmissions in England, said the Housing Secretary.

Robert Jenrick, asked on Times Radio whether the Government would look to close pubs in such an event, said: “We don’t have any plans to do that.”

He also said schools would definitely return to full capacity in September and confirmed it would be the priority should there be a second spike of infections.

After five months of lockdown, the Stanley Spencer Gallery is planning to re-open on August 15th. The new exhibition “Love, Art, Loss: The Wives of Stanley Spencer” focuses on Spencer’s complex relationship with the two women who were so central to his work. The story of Hilda and Patricia, the loans from the Tate and Southampton, the striking new wall colour, and the changed layout make it a most fascinating and impressive show.
The Gallery is taking great care to keep everybody safe and has received the “Good to Go” accreditation from Visit England. Only ten visitors will be allowed at any time and they will be asked to wear masks and to sanitise their hands on entering.
It has not been an easy year for any gallery. But “Love, Art, Loss” looks a wonderful way to return from lockdown and we hope that you get a chance to come and enjoy it in safety.
