Tier 3 lockdown restrictions will be imposed on Greater Manchester if leaders in the region cannot come to an agreement with the government, Boris Johnson has said.

Speaking at a news conference from Downing Street, flanked by chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance, and government medical adviser Dr Susan Hopkins, the prime minister said: ‘If agreement cannot be reached, I will need to intervene in order to protect Manchester’s hospitals and save the lives of Manchester residents.’

It comes after it was revealed that Lancashire was going into Tier 3 – the highest level of coronavirus restrictions in England – from midnight tonight.

Manchester’s leaders have been holding out for a stronger support package they say is needed to protect workers and businesses.
