  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson faces anger over England’s new Tier system – BBC News” – below is their description.

    The Prime Minister has defended England’s new coronavirus restrictions that begin when lockdown ends on 2nd December. Many Conservative MPs reacted angrily when it was revealed that almost the entire country would be placed into the two highest tiers – with many areas that have low infection rates facing tougher controls than before. They’re calling for a more locally targeted approach. Boris Johnson said he realised it was “frustrating” but insisted that the restrictions were necessary to curb the disease. Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by deputy political editor Vicki Young in Kent, which has been placed in the strictest tier.
