Addressing the nation on the latest coronavirus measures from Downing Street, Boris Johnson is expected to tell Britons the country is not ready to further ease lockdown measures from tomorrow. 

It comes as new lockdown restrictions were introduced overnight for some areas in the north of the country.

People from different households in Greater Manchester, parts of east Lancashire and West Yorkshire have been banned from meeting each other inside their homes or in gardens following a spike in virus cases.

The new rules also ban members of two different households from mixing in pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues, but these businesses will remain open for those visiting individually or from the same household.

The Government said it will give police forces and councils powers to enforce the new rules – adding that some exemptions will be put in place, including for the vulnerable.
