Mayor of Manchester: 'We won't break the law' as time runs out for agreeing COVID-19 restrictions

Andy Burnham says he would accept Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions if they were imposed on Greater Manchester by the government.

The region’s mayor told Sky News it was ministers’ “prerogative” to announce the measures, if negotiations over the next few hours end in stalemate.

He and other local leaders have been given until midday today to reach an agreement on moving three million people into England’s highest band of coronavirus controls.

    Don't blame him for tier 3, blame the Government, he did his best to protect GM. That being said if had rebranded GM as SERCO he would have received the necessary funding in time at all. Also why is it that he wont break the law but its perfectly acceptable for the government ministers to do so?
