  • Sky News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19 UK: Mayor rejects tougher lockdown rules in northern England” – below is their description.

    Tougher coronavirus restrictions are being imposed on four new areas – but one mayor says they are “damaging” and he will not accept them. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has urged residents in the Liverpool city region, Warrington, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough not to socially mix with those from other households – except in outdoor spaces like parks and outdoor hospitality settings. He asked them to avoid “all but essential travel” – meaning people can still go to work and school.
