68% of England under tier 3 coronavirus rules for Christmas

68% of England will be living under England’s toughest coronavirus restrictions this Christmas – equivalent to 38 million.

Around 30% of the population will be in tier two, while 2% will be in tier one, with the least strict level of curbs.

Here’s a recap of the new tier 3 areas starting from 00:01 Saturday 19 December:

  • Bedfordshire
  • Buckinghamshire
  • Berkshire
  • Peterborough
  • The whole of Hertfordshire
  • Surrey, except Waverley
  • Hastings and Rother
  • Portsmouth, Gosport and Havant

At the same time, Bristol and North Somerset are to leave tier 3 for tier two on Saturday and will be under tier 2 rules. 

And Herefordshire will join and live under tier 1 rules.

Millions will continue to live under tier three curbs after the government resisted calls to loosen restrictions in the north of England.
