    Talks aimed at solving the intense row over whether Greater Manchester should go into a Tier 3 lockdown have ended today without progress.

It comes after Downing Street warned that Greater Manchester’s entire intensive care unit capacity would be taken up with coronavirus patients in less than a month “if nothing changes” in the region.
