Hospital admissions in the UK are rising rapidly, especially in the north of England where there are warnings that in some areas they are returning to levels seen during the original peak of the pandemic.

Average case numbers in England are 55 cases per 100,000 people. But across much of northern England the situation is much worse.

The Manchester area has recorded 561 cases per 100,000. In Liverpool it’s 516 per 100 thousand. And levels are increasing in the Midlands with Nottingham now recording 440 cases per 100,000 people.

Restrictions for parts of England are expected to be tightened by the government — which is considering closing pubs and restaurants.

It’s due to introduce a tiered approach with different levels of lockdown restriction for different areas categories.

Labour has accused the prime minister Boris Johnson of failing to implement clear policies for dealing with the pandemic.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Dan Johnson in Nottingham, political editor Laura Kuenssberg and health editor Hugh Pym.
