A MASSIVE post-Christmas lockdown could still be enforced as the government said it “rules nothing out”.
This week Northern Ireland announced six-weeks of full lockdown, while Wales announced a further freeze and Scotland is teetering on the edge.
Asked if England would follow suit, effectively putting the entire UK back in a full lockdown, schools minister Nick Gibb said “Nothing is ruled out of course as we tackle this pandemic”.
Earlier the Prime Minister’s spokesperson said: “We’ve been clear of the rationale behind the tiered regional approach and that’s what we’ve set out for the time.
“As we’ve said throughout we will obviously keep the latest data and the latest trends under review.”
