Coronavirus UK news – Your local lockdown tier revealed TODAY as postcode checker site launched as Hancock reveals rules

THE country’s local lockdown tiers were announced today, revealing what restrictions YOU will be living under until at least December 16.

The Government launched its postcode checker tool this morning, with users able to enter their details to find out what tier their area is in.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock later fleshed out his plans in the House of Commons, explaining the exact rules in each area.

London and Liverpool managed to escape Tier 3 rules but there was misery for millions in Manchester and Newcastle who will be plunged into the toughest Covid restrictions next week

Each area will be placed into one of three tiers when lockdown ends on December 2 – but the system has been toughened from the previous regime, meaning more authorities will move into the higher tiers.

Areas which make progress in slowing the spread of the virus could still be moved down a tier before Christmas, however, with the first review of the tiers due to take place by December 16.
