Lockdown 2.0: The new regulations and how they affect your business


With England set to be plunged into a second lockdown from midnight tonight, Retail Week highlights the changes in the new government guidance and what they might mean for your business. 

From midnight tonight, much of the UK will once again be plunged into a national lockdown called for by the government to stem the spread of the coronavirus in the run up to Christmas.
