Nearly half of self-employed workers are less likely to continue in their jobs  because of the coronavirus pandemic, a report reveals today.

About two million could hunt for other roles after struggling during the Covid-19 crisis, according to a study drawn-up ahead of next month's Budget.

The Office for National Statistics recorded a “record annual decrease in self-employed workers” in an update last October, which said there were “4.56 million self-employed people (14.0% of all people in employment)” in the UK – “240,000 fewer than the previous quarter”.
