Meanwhile speculation is mounting over a three-tier coronavirus system that will reportedly see different areas of the country assigned Covid infection severity levels.

Tier 3 – the most severe measures, for areas with the highest infection levels – would see pubs, bars and restaurants close and households told not to mix.

Tier 2 areas are also expected to be hit by a ban on meeting people from other households, although pubs and restaurants would be allowed to stay open.

Places with lowest infection rates will still have to stick to the “rule of six” and 10pm curfews currently in place across England.

An announcement from the Government is expected to be made on Monday (October 12).
