But this does not include an event to be held in a dwelling, a wedding reception, a sporting event, or a training event. The guidelines also suggest that you could have an outdoor divorce party with 200 guests, just not a wedding.

Harry Kane has effectively ruled himself out of Tottenham’s season opener against Manchester City — the team he wants to join — by spending another day outside the UK. Despite this, the fact Kane was still in Florida on Wednesday means he will not resume training until at least the start of next week. City expect their pursuit of Kane to go to the wire this month due to the different valuations placed on the striker. Their initial offer of £100million was rejected by Spurs, and there is uncertainty over whether the Premier League champions can strike a compromise with Daniel Levy. City have already raised around £50m from sales this summer, while Leroy Sane’s move to Bayern Munich for an initial £45m is accounted for this year.

Tax revenues were well up on expectations in July as more of the economy moved towards a full reopening. But although July is a VAT due month, the tax take was still 17pc up on expectations, as consumers and businesses felt confident enough to spend more. The income tax take was €2.1bn, or 5.5pc above expectations, while corporation tax receipts were just €216m last month, although that was still 40.4pc above expectations. And corporate tax receipts are expected to start falling as of 2023 if and when a global deal on multinational taxes takes effect.
