Liverpool’s leaders have agreed the city region will go into the strictest tier of England’s new lockdown system – and the new measures could last up to six months, Sky News understands.

The move has yet to be signed off by the Prime Minister, who is due to unveil the new three-tier system of restrictions on Monday.
