The following areas will be subject to level two – high alert – restrictions from 12:01 am Saturday:

The decision follows close discussions with local leaders – and will be reviewed every 14 days, the government said

« We continue to see a worrying increase in the number of cases across the country, and it is clear that decisive action is needed, » said Health Secretary Matt Hancock

« These restrictions are a challenge for all of us, but only by working together and following the rules will we reduce infection rates. Failure to act now will only lead to longer disruptions and greater economic damage « 

It comes as government data recorded 23,065 more cases of coronavirus in the UK in the past 24 hours and 280 more deaths

Karl Turner, Labor MP for Hull East, said the Level 2 restrictions were « not strong enough » to have a significant effect on the Covid (R) breeding number in Hull and would be « exceedingly difficult for the hotel sector « 

« I am also deeply frustrated that despite higher levels of deprivation Hull must receive the same level of additional support as East Riding I have made it clear to government ministers and will continue to fight for a fair deal « 

Hull has seen a sharp increase in positive cases and hospital admissions in recent weeks Weekly case rates are currently 248 people per 100,000

In Oxford, some local politicians were dismayed that only the city would be subject to stricter measures The rest of Oxfordshire will remain at the top

Anneliese Dodds, Labor MP for Oxford East, urged townspeople to comply, but said she was « concerned that evidence of the need for action in Oxfordshire is not have not been taken into account « by the Ministry of Health

Susan Brown, chief of Oxford City Council, called the decision not to place the whole county at level two « shocking », adding « that the spread and number of cases outside the city are also of great concern when so many people visit our city « 

Dudley adviser Patrick Hanley thanked locals for their ‘tremendous efforts’ to keep the area at the top, but said cases continued to rise nonetheless

« The numbers are doubling every two weeks and we must act now to protect ourselves and our families, and we all owe a duty of care to our elderly and vulnerable residents, » he said

Dudley was the last of the seven West Midlands Metropolitan Local Authority areas to enter level two

The new restrictions affect around 15 million people in Staffordshire, Dudley, the Black Country, and Telford and Wrekin, in Shropshire

Key among the new measures is the ban on households mixing indoors – which is in addition to the rule of six and closes at 10 p.m., restrictions already imposed at level one

Trevor Emery, deputy manager of the Fountain Inn in Leek, Staffordshire, said he believed further restrictions could have a « very big impact » on whether the pub can stay open

M Emery, 55, said: « We would like to stay open, but we need to make sure we are making a profit for the channel

He explained that it was a popular hangout for families: « We just have to see how it goes, » he told the BBC

Bringing restrictions down to level one would be « the best Christmas present we can give ourselves, » Stafford City Council Chief Patrick Farrington said in a letter to local households

« We are at a critical moment in the fight against this pandemic and I am convinced that with the support of the whole community we will soon be able to return to medium alert, » he said
