Preston is the latest part of the UK to face a tightening of lockdown measures after rising coronavirus infection rates were reported in the city.

The rolling seven-day rate of new cases of COVID-19 in the Lancashire city has risen from 20.3 per 100,000 people in the seven days to 27 July to 32.8 in the seven days to 3 August. A total of 47 new cases have been recorded in that period.

The restrictions around Greater Manchester will be extended to the city, meaning different households cannot meet indoors.
