Greater Manchester’s Mayor has announced he expects the region to be plunged back into Tier 3 once the England lockdown ends next week.
Andy Burnham said it was ‘more likely than not’ the region would be placed back in the highest tier restrictions from December 3.
Such a move would send a population of 2.8million back into the toughest restrictions after months of strict rules.
Boris Johnson is expected to announce which areas will be going into each tier on Thursday.
The Prime Minister outlined the revised Tier 1,2 and 3 rules this week as he revealed the Government’s plan for exiting lockdown.
