Nottingham and surrounding areas will move into the Tier 3 restrictions, it has been confirmed.

Residents of Nottingham city, Gedling, Rushcliffe and Broxtowe will be placed in the “very high” risk category from tomorrow (October 29) in an attempt to drive down transmission of Covid-19.

The news comes after Nottinghamshire consistently recorded one of the highest infection rates in the UK.

The restrictions will include the ban of off licence sales of alcohol after 9pm.

Pubs and bars that do not serve ‘substantial’ meals must close, alongside casinos, betting shops, bingo halls and soft play areas.

Different households will also be banned from mixing indoors and outdoors, including in private gardens.

David Mellen, Leader of Nottingham City Council, said: “We are reaching a critical point in managing the spread of the virus as we head towards winter, so, we have to keep going.

“We have to continue to work together by sticking to the rules and following a few important rules and guidelines.

“This will help to stop the spread of Covid-19 in Nottingham.”

Members are reminded that Warrington has now moved into tier three restrictions.
