    - The Health Secretary is to set out which tier each local authority in England will fall under after the end of the national lockdown.
  • - Matt Hancock will make the announcement in Parliament today after the Government set out its Covid-19 “winter plan” earlier this week.
  • - Each area will be placed into one of three tiers when lockdown ends on December 2 – but the system has been toughened from the previous regime, meaning more authorities will move into the higher tiers
  • - Areas which make progress in slowing the spread of the virus could still be moved down a tier before Christmas.
  • - Winchester and Hampshire were previously in Tier 1
