As a result, this means 74,000 jobs were lost last month according to latest figures from the Office of National Statistics.
However, the economy did grow by 1.8 percent in May as Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, relaxed some of the strict lockdown measures.
In comparison, the UK economy is now 24.5 percent smaller than it was in February before the impact of the coronavirus was felt in Britain.
Jonathan Athow, deputy national statistician for economic statistics at the ONS told the BBC: “In the important services sector, we saw some pick-up in retail, which saw record online sales. However, with lockdown restrictions remaining in place, many other services remained in the doldrums, with a number of areas seeing further declines.”
