Pressure to delay primary school return after London U-turn - BBC News

Most primary schools in London are to remain closed at the start of the January term after the government bowed to protests and pressure from local authorities.

The Education Secretary Gavin Williamson dropped plans to keep them open after councils warned it could lead to disaster and threatened legal action.

The government is now facing pressure to announce that all primary schools in England will remain closed, as coronavirus cases surge, and doctors warn that the NHS is facing a crisis.
