Brits were spotted in their masses heading out for one final late night on Wednesday just before Boris Johnson's new coronavirus measures come into play.

The Prime Minister has today ordered pubs and restaurants to stop serving at 10pm, considerably earlier than most establishments across the country.

And owners will be forced to kick customers out of their premises before the cut-off point or risk a fine.

The new measures, which also outlaw customers from ordering drinks at a bar, will come into full effect as of today.

Rules are slightly different in Wales, where pubs will not have to close bang on 10pm, but rather just stop serving alcohol at that time.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said such a plan would allow an 'orderly close' rather than forcing people to rapidly finish their food and drinks.

The impact of the regulations is already proving significant with Monday's Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Arsenal now kicking off at 8pm, rather than the initial plan of 8.15pm, which would have likely seen punters kicked out of pubs before the end of the game.

But across Britain, revellers took advantage of their last night of freedom as they stepped out in full force up and down the country, with many expressing frustration on social media that this was likely to be their last post-10pm pint until spring next year.

Dominic Raab admits UK 'could end up in a national lockdown'

  Dominic Raab admits UK 'could end up in a national lockdown' Dominic Raab today warned the UK 'could end up in a national lockdown' if Boris Johnson's new coronavirus crackdown fails to get the disease under control. The Foreign Secretary said a second shutdown 'is what we want to avoid' but the nuclear option remains in the Government's 'arsenal' if all else fails. Mr Raab said he hoped 'if everyone plays by the rules' then the nation will be able to go into the Christmas period without a national lockdown being imposed. He also defended the Government's plans to allow the police to ask the Army for help in order to boost Covid-19 enforcement.

Boris Johnson apologetically took a hammer to Britons ' social lives today as he reintroduced lockdown measures in England to see off a second wave of Office workers who can work 'normally' from home should do so. English pubs, bars and restaurants must close by 10 pm from Thursday.

Women were seen sporting their glad rags while some men donned smart suits and others hooded sweatshirts to combat the downpour.

Some were seen desperately trying to protect their finery by holding jackets and blazers of their heads while others huddled together in large groups to stay out of the wet.

Revellers in Leeds, London, Lancaster and Middlesborough were seen taking full advantage of the last night of normal opening hours as they nursed drinks throughout the evening.

On social media, scores of people posted pictures of their drinks, bemoaning the fact it was likely to be their last in a pub for six months.

Mr Johnson's measures will come into effect the day after 6,178 more cases of coronavirus were reported and health chiefs announced 37 more deaths.

Data shows that 4,501 new Covid-19 infections are now being recorded each day, on average, up from 3,286 last Wednesday. The UK yesterday became just the 14 country in the world to pass the milestone of 400,000 cases, after another 4,926 patients tested positive for the disease.

Police federation chiefs have blasted Boris Johnson's new rules as 'absurd' and 'a nonsense' as small business owners say they will go bust if workers stay home again.

The Prime Minister faced fire from all sides as he U-turned on his push to reopen workplaces after just a few weeks to tell office staff to work from home if they can.

He was barbed for introducing new measures including a 10pm pub curfew and £200 fines for mask rule-breakers among new restrictions on social settings in England.

The Premier League confirmed in a statement yesterday that kick off times were being changed in line with the new rules, so that fans are able to watch full matches in pubs before the 10pm cut-off.

Pub-goers head home across England as 10pm curfew begins

  Pub-goers head home across England as 10pm curfew begins The new rules, which also ban customers in England from ordering from the bar, come as the government aims to avoid a second national lockdown in the face of rising infection figures.

Chancellor hints at tax rises down the track as he reveals workers will get 80 PER CENT of salaries for one third of their hours in new £300 MILLION a month scheme - but warns he 'cannot save every job' Rishi Sunak today hinted tax rises will be necessary to pay for the coronavirus crisis after he unveiled a new package of measures

A spokesman said: 'Following the UK Government's announcement yesterday that pubs will close at 22:00, midweek Premier League fixtures will now take place at 17:45 and 20:00.

'These new kick-off times come into effect from Monday, September 28, with Fulham now hosting Aston Villa at 17:45 BST and Arsenal's trip to Liverpool now starting at 20:00 BST.

'In consultation with all relevant stakeholders, the Premier League is considering appropriate arrangements for matches that will take place after October 4.'

The PM also announced he is making the British Army available to help the police enforce stringent new coronavirus rules.

He said officers will now have the 'option to draw on military support where required' to free up staff so more can crackdown on rule-breakers as he revealed fines are being doubled to £200.

But Downing Street ruled out deploying soldiers on the streets, saying they would be used for 'backfilling certain duties, such as office roles and guarding protected sites, so police can be out enforcing the virus response'.

Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation Ken Marsh slammed the announcement as 'a nonsense' and National Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales John Apter said it 'lacked any detail'.

Meanwhile Chief Executive of UKHospitality Kate Nicholls described the restrictions as 'another crushing blow' for many businesses.

At the same time Tory MPs warned there must not be another 'major lockdown', saying the decision to ditch the back to work drive will cause 'dismay' among workers who live in 'cramped, overcrowded accommodation'.

Brexit legislation giving ministers to break international law PASSES

  Brexit legislation giving ministers to break international law PASSES The Internal Market Bill tonight cleared its final stage in the House of Commons by 340 votes to 256 and now passes to the Lords for further scrutiny. It allows ministers to override parts of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement brokered with Brussels last year, an act which the Government concedes breaches international law 'in a limited and specific way'.Critics, including all five living former prime ministers, also argue this would wreck the UK's reputation as a nation which honours its agreements.

MP for Telford Lucy Allen even went as far to tweet 'our collective health is not at risk', flying in the face of the PM's main message to the country.

Others also said their constituents would be furious at the new crackdown after they followed the rules only to have seen 'people at protests, at street parties, not having action taken against them.

But Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon warned Mr Johnson his actions did not go far enough as she banned people from visiting each other in their own homes in a bid to slash to Covid-19 R rate north of the border

The unveiling of the Government's latest coronavirus clampdown came as:

Metropolitan Police Federation Chairman Mr Marsh warned the rules are 'nonsense' and 'absurd'. He told MailOnline: 'In terms of the enforcement, for us it's really difficult. I mean I'm not a massive fan of Nicola Sturgeon but at least she's calling the shots correctly.

'Six months' of curbs at a glance

'If someone snitches and says Mr Big has got 20 people in his house, then what are we going to do? Sit outside his house all evening and wait for people to come out and count them or something?

'That's one address. We're talking about millions of addresses. It's just a nonsense. It's absolutely absurd. Why can't they put in place what is in Scotland I have no idea.

'Why? Why is ours six, but Scotland's is no one? It's not right and it just makes it so difficult for my colleagues to enforce when you can make it so crystal clear so it's not ambiguous, there's no way around it, these are the rules, adhere to them.'

He added: 'But you know when you've got the Home Secretary saying snitch on your neighbours, well good luck with that one Priti Patel. How are we supposed to enforce that?'

National Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales John Apter added: 'More funding for policing this pandemic is much needed.

Boris Johnson to brief nation as coronavirus cases climb

  Boris Johnson to brief nation as coronavirus cases climb It comes amid reports a final decision is imminent on whether Merseyside will join the North East with tougher lockdown measures.Boris Johnson will be joined at a Downing Street press conference by chief medical officer for England professor Chris Whitty and chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance in what will be the 100th coronavirus briefing since the pandemic hit the UK.

'The service needs all the help it can get, as financial pressures on Forces are increasing day-by-day - but today's announcement lacked any detail. We will wait for that before we celebrate too much. Since the start of this pandemic police and military have been working together on logistics.

'This has and continues to work well; but the announcement from the Prime Minister has been seized by some as a suggestion that the military will be on streets helping the police to enforce Covid regulations. This is not what policing has asked for and not what it needs.'

Mr Apter added: 'This is an ever-changing situation and police officers will continue to do an incredible job at adapting quickly.

'The vast majority of the public complied with the restrictions placed on them. These restrictions affect us all, but this is about keeping each other as safe as possible.

'I would hope the public will carry on doing the right thing to help protect fellow citizens to minimise the spread of the virus.'

The fresh restrictions also sparked anger from the hospitality sector, with UKHospitality's Ms Nicholls describing them as 'another crushing blow' for many businesses.

She said: 'A hard close time is bad for business and bad for controlling the virus – we need to allow time for people to disperse over a longer period.

'Table service has been widely adopted in some parts of the sector since reopening but it is not necessary across all businesses, such as coffee shops.

'It is hard to understand how these measures are the solution to fighting the disease when Government data shows that just 5 per cent of infections out of the home are related to hospitality.'
