  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Sadiq Khan: Putting London in tier 3 ‘doesn’t make sense'” – below is their description.

    The mayor of London has criticised the government’s Covid tier system, calling it a ‘blunt instrument being retrofitted around solutions that are not as effective as they should be’. The city will be placed in tier 3 from 16 December, meaning bars, restaurants and non-essential shops must close. But, speaking to BBC Breakfast, Khan said the majority of new infections in the capital were among school-age children. ‘I see very few children of that age in pubs, bars and restaurants’, Khan said. He urged  the government to close secondary schools so that pupils do not pass on the virus to older relatives over Christmas
