Confusion is continuing in Britain over Boris Johnson's plans to exit lockdown.

In his address to the nation last night, the Prime Minister outlined some of the ways that restrictions would be lifted over time, starting with people being "actively encouraged" to return to work this week if possible.

However, his speech prompted a backlash from those who felt the message wasn't clear enough.

There has been particular criticism of the British government's new "stay alert" slogan, which has replaced "stay at home".

Nick Ferrari, presenter of Nick Ferrari at Breakfast on LBC, joined us to explain why there is so much confusion over the strategy.
