Newspaper Headlines: Hope’ after zero deaths, and pupil catch-up plan: The headline in the Daily Express is simply “Zero” as it joins most front pages in leading with the news that no new deaths from coronavirus were announced in official UK figures on Tuesday while the Daily Express also interprets the announcement as a positive sign for 21 June – which it dubs “freedom day”. Its front page also features pictures of beachgoers enjoying the warm weather at Durdle Door in Dorset.
BBC News: Staff:
The Metro says the “welcome milestone” came as daily cases doubled in a month because of the Indian variant: Experts are warning the country is at a “pivotal moment”, while in Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has “slammed on the brakes” on plans to ease restrictions in much of the country:
The Times strikes a more optimistic tone, saying the news of zero deaths has raised “fresh hope” the remaining restrictions can be lifted in England on 21 June: However, the paper notes Covid deaths may nudge upwards in the coming weeks, especially because of reporting delays over the bank holiday weekend:
The i has a similar take, saying hopes are rising for 21 June, with Downing Street insisting the planned easing of restrictions is on track and the current data does not suggest the need for a delay: Meanwhile, the paper says the UK is set to buy a new version of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine which is adapted to counter the variant which was first identified in South Africa:
The Daily Mail argues the country has “nothing to fear from freedom”, saying the landmark of zero daily deaths has been hailed by many as “dramatic proof of the success of Britain’s vaccination programme”. The paper points out it is the first time in 447 days that officials have announced no coronavirus deaths:
Meanwhile, the Telegraph says some senior Tory MPs are urging the prime minister to push ahead with lifting restrictions on 21 June: Ms Sturgeon’s decision to delay the next stage of easing lockdown in much of Scotland has raised concerns the UK government could follow her lead, the paper reports:
The Guardian leads with the government’s post-pandemic catch-up plan for children, which it says has been criticised as “inadequate” by teaching unions: Pupils will be offered an extra 100 million hours of tuition under the £1.4bn programme but the National Education Union said the funding committed was insufficient and the government’s own tsar has warned “more will be needed to meet the scale of the challenge”, the paper reports:
The Financial Times reports that Eurozone inflation rose to 2% in May – the first time the rate has surpassed the European Central Bank’s target in more than two years: The paper says the figures will complicate next week’s decision on whether to maintain ultra-loose monetary policy amid signs economic activity and prices are rising as lockdown measures are eased.The Daily Star focuses on what it describes “a dollop of good news” that Heinz is to start making ketchup in the UK for the first time since 1999. The paper says the move will create 50 new jobs:
The paper describes it as a pandemic landmark. For the Financial Times, it is a symbolic moment. The i says fewer deaths are generally recorded following weekends and bank holidays but the figure inevitably raises hopes that a corner has been turned.
The Daily Mirror says it is proof that the vaccine is doing its job. For the Times, it will intensify pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to push ahead with the plan to end restrictions in England on 21 June.
But the Daily Mail points to what it calls an “insidious campaign” to keep the remaining curbs in place for longer. In response, its headline declares: “Zero deaths … nothing to fear from freedom”.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Nicola Sturgeon’s pause in the easing of restrictions across large parts of Scotland has raised fears that the UK government will follow her lead and delay the relaxation of measures in England.
It says Tory MPs have warned that throughout the pandemic that the first minister has repeatedly made cautious decisions which have been seen to influence Downing Street.
The government’s additional £1.4bn to help children in England catch up with learning they have missed during the pandemic is widely reported – and makes the lead for the Guardian.
The i says the sum is certainly not to be sniffed at but the offer falls short of both the massive scale of the challenge and Boris Johnson’s own rhetoric.
There is widespread interest in plans by Oxfordshire County Council to become the first place in England to ban smoking outside restaurants and offices.
In a bid to become “smoke-free” by 2025, the Daily Telegraph reports, the county hopes to create more spaces where people feel “empowered” not to smoke. But the Daily Express asks: “Has the nanny state gone too far?”
A number of papers have pictures of travellers’ caravans on the Long Walk, outside Windsor Castle. “Travellers set up camp on Queen’s lawn,” is the headline in the Express.
It says police were seen talking to the travellers outside their caravans as joggers attempted to avoid the mayhem. The Sun has a picture of Prince Andrew driving past the encampment in his Range Rover with airpods in his ears.
Finally, gardeners worrying about their lawns turning yellow during the dry summer weather can feel reassured by new advice from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
According to the Times, the gardening charity says it should be a sign that its custodian is doing their bit for the environment.
For the first time, the RHS is urging people to stop sprinkling mains water on lawns. This would help prevent water shortages and protect wildlife in rivers that are at risk of drying up.
Janet Manning at the RHS tells the paper that sprinklers can use as much water in an hour as one person would use in a week.
