Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak lay out plans for new lockdown

The Prime Minister has announced a new three-tier strategy for local lockdowns in an address to the nation.

The three-tier system will see different parts of England placed in different categories dependent on rates of infection, with areas in the highest level expected to face the toughest restrictions.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak also set out the Government’s three part plan to protect jobs and businesses through the winter.

The job support scheme will protect jobs whether your business is open or closed, Mr Sunak says.

“If you’re business can open safely, but with reduced or uncertain demand the Government will directly subsidise people’s wages over the winter,” he adds.
