The Blue Bell Hotel is based in Acklam Road and is one of the various pubs screening the Euros.

The move was met with a mixed reaction on Facebook with some users saying the fan zone would have been a recipe for disaster and others urging the pub to go ahead with the original plan despite concerns about the spread of COVID. 

A number of events have been curtailed in recent weeks amid concerns about a rise in the infection rate. 

According to some reports, Boris Johnson could announce a delay in the lifting of restrictions on Monday. All restrictions had been scheduled to be lifted from June 21.
