COVID-19: Outdoor learning centres could be 'lost forever' if not included on PM's roadmap out of lockdown
Outdoor learning centres have warned they could be "lost forever" if they aren't included on Boris Johnson's roadmap to reopen from England's latest lockdown.
The prime minister has already promised that getting young people back into their classrooms is his top priority, but he's being urged to allow outdoor learning organisations to restart residential stays too.
"We need the government to step up and make that decision," said Sean Day, at his centre run by the Calvert Trust in Cumbria.
"It's absolutely heartbreaking to see it like this when we know the difference we could make to the recovery for young people," Mr Day told Sky News.
"We have developed a plan to enable us to operate in a COVID-secure way and we need to be open by Easter. If we don't get people back by the summer, rather than it being 40% of UK's outdoor centres closing for good it could be double that."
