Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester, has said he won’t “roll over” and place the region under Tier 3 restrictions at the “sight of a cheque”. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to offer Manchester’s leaders up to £100 million to accept the measures or risk having them imposed against their will. Speaking on Sky News Mr Burnham said: “Tier 3 is a serious thing, it’s a serious development if you have to ask people to go into just before winter, just before Christmas… “People can’t just be pressurised into it and I’m not going to be pressurised into it. “And I’m not just going to roll over at the sight of a cheque, this is about properly supporting those people whose lives will be damaged by Tier 3.” Read our live blog with all the latest coronavirus updates here: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/coronavirus-news-uk-covid-deaths-cases-circuit-breaker-lockdown/ Subscribe to The Telegraph on YouTube ► https://bit.ly/3idrdLHThe Telegraph YouTube Channel
