css-14iz86j-BoldText {font-weight: bold;} Stoke-on-Trent, Coventry and Slough are due to move to level two restrictions on Saturday, government announced

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said in all of these areas the infection rate was over 100 per 100,000 population

M Hancock also said discussions were underway to raise Warrington to the highest level of restrictions

This comes as a minister said people should educate themselves about the rules that apply to their region amid complaints, the system is confusing

M Hancock told the House of Commons that the new restrictions would take effect in Stoke-on-Trent, Coventry and Slough on Saturday at 12:01 a.m.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council had asked Mr. Hancock to place the area under « high » level two restrictions due to increased infection rates

Under the high alert, households are prohibited from mingling indoors, including in pubs and restaurants, and people are encouraged to reduce their use of public transport

M Hancock said cases in areas rising to level two are doubling about every fortnight – « and we’re seeing a worrying increase in cases among those over 60 »

Speaking of Warrington, he said: « We will officially start talks and I hope we can come to an agreement and a resolution soon »

Earlier Crime and Police Minister Kit Malthouse said the three English alert categories involved some « complexity » and recommended people go online to research the measures

M Malthouse told BBC Breakfast that most people comply and that the number of fines imposed by police is « minimal »

However, he said agents enforce the rules where there are people « taking the mickey » – especially those who organize unlicensed music events.

« There is a lot of information on the internet where people can find out about the regulations in their area and that is basically what we recommend everyone to do, » he said.

« We all need to recognize that we have an individual duty to our collective health and that means informing ourselves about the regulations in force in our region and following the rules »

Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins told BBC Radio Manchester officers are still called to around 400 house parties a week – but do not want to impose fines for violations of related rules to coronaviruses

Police told the Special Home Affairs Committee on Wednesday that coronavirus restrictions were clear and easy to enforce in the spring, but the tier system introduced this month made it harder

Deputy Chief Constable Owen Weatherill, an officer responsible for the pandemic response in England, said he has called on the government to simplify its messages to make them easier for the public to understand

He told MEPs he originally thought there would be « streamlined and consistent levels » in the new alert system – but nuances « crept in »

This, he said, causes people to become « tired, confused and less likely to comply » because « they don’t know what to comply with »

M Weatherill said there was more confusion as recent changes mixed regulations, which are enforceable by police, with advice, which is not

Sometimes the police had not seen the regulations drafted by the health ministry before they went into effect, he said

« I think presenting them the way we did has created more confusion, » added M Weatherhill

The committee also learned that only about half of the fixed penalty notices issued during the pandemic had been paid

Officers told MPs they are focusing on overt violations of the law, like illegal raves, rather than fines for members of the public who are confused

Lancashire Police Chief Andy Rhodes said his area had undergone up to five rule changes – and violations increased as it moved from level 2 to level 3
