Boris Johnson has been briefing cabinet ministers today about the new three tiered lockdown system for England – amid stark warnings by leading scientists that the country is at a ‘precarious point’ in the coronavirus crisis. Political leaders in the north say their local economies could be shattered by the new restrictions – and want much more control over test and trace efforts as well as financial support.
