Millions more people in England face strictest coronavirus rules as cases rise - BBC News
Millions more people are living under the highest level of coronavirus restrictions in England as the number of cases continue to rise.
People in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield have joined the other Tier 3 areas, with most of the hospitality industry closed and no household mixing allowed.
Along with Greater Manchester, Lancashire and the City of Liverpool region, which were already living under the strictest rules, it means more than 7 million people in England are living under the highest restrictions.
The mayor of Sheffield has called on the government to explain how the area can exit the Tier 3 restrictions.
