Coronavirus lockdown: 1.2 million people across Lancashire to face new Covid-19 restrictions

Lancashire will likely this weekend become the latest swathe of England to be placed under tightened coronavirus restrictions.
Some 1.2 million people living in the county will be ordered to stop mixing with anyone from different households or using public transport for any non-essential journeys.
But, pertinently, the measures will not yet extend to a curfew on pubs and restaurants, as was announced in the northeast on Thursday.

The new restrictions, expected to be announced by health secretary Matt Hancock on Friday, come as the region continues to struggle to drive down persistently high infection rates.
