No normal UK Christmas but families may be able to get together -Sunak

·1 min read

LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Britons will not be able to enjoy a normal Christmas this year due to the second wave of COVID-19, but the government is looking at ways to enable families to get together, Finance Minster Rishi Sunak said on Sunday.

"Frustrating as it is for all of us, Christmas is not going to be normal this year," he told Sky's Sophie Ridge on Sunday.

"But that said, the Prime Minister is, for example, looking at ways to see how families can spend time with each other." (Reporting by William Schomberg and Paul Sandle, Editing by William Maclean)
