The coronavirus reproduction number (R) has grown again in the South East in the past week, according to the latest Government update.

It comes as Surrey continues to experience rises in the number of Covid-19 cases, and as Spelthorne is placed on the Government’s Covid-19 watchlist.

Officials are monitoring the situation in Spelthorne closely and while a local lockdown is not being brought in at the moment, the likelihood has increased due to a sustained rise in case numbers.

The Government is also considering a new national lockdown as cases rise across the country.
