Although the vast majority of England has been placed in tiers 2 and 3 in the government’s latest restrictions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, all shops will be allowed to open.

Health secretary Matt Hancock announced the new measures in a speech to the House of Commons this morning.

Only Cornwall, the Isle of Wight and the Scilly Isles have escaped the most severe restrictions.

Mr Hancock said areas could move up or down tiers, depending on infection rates, and mass testing will be available for those in tier 3. A full review is expected to take place on December 16.
