The city of Leicester has been ordered to tighten its lockdown restrictions, unlike the rest of England where they will be relaxed on July 4th. The decision follows a surge in new cases of coronavirus in the area, with more than 800 reported in the fortnight to June 23rd.
A series of strict local measures announced in the House of Commons by the Health Secretary Matt Hancock include the closure of all schools and non-essential shops. He also said that all but essential travel to and from Leicester is to be avoided.
Mr Hancock said the measures would be kept under review and would not stay in place longer than was necessary.
