Nearly half of UK employees commuted to work last week

Almost half of UK employees travelled to work last week, the Office of National Statistics has revealed this morning, as the country continues to lift its coronavirus lockdowns.

According to the data, 49 per cent of workers commuted to their place of employment in the week ending 28 June, up from 44 per cent the week before.

Likewise, the proportion of those working exclusively from home fell from 33 per cent to 29 per cent over the same period.
