Lancashire to remain in Tier 3 for now

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has held a Downing Street briefing regarding further restrictions to be imposed to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic and the 2 new strains which have been identified. 

Whilst he has confirmed areas have escalated from Tier 1 to Tier 2; areas such as Warrington and Cheshire are moving to Tier 3; and more areas in the South and East are moving into Tier 4, Lancashire will remain the same.

This means that Lancashire, Blackburn with Darwen, and Blackpool remain in Tier 3 on Boxing Day and until the next review.

Here’s the full list of areas by restriction/tier including changes to their restrictions which will apply from Boxing Day: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/full-list-of-local-restriction-tiers-by-area
