COVID-19: New restrictions for parts of West Midlands

New lockdown measures have come into force in the West Midlands in England after the number of coronavirus cases rose.

People in Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull are banned from meeting others who are not part of their household, or support bubble, indoors or in private gardens.

The new restrictions affect around 1.6 million people.

It is the latest in a number of areas around the UK to have local lockdowns introduced, although the measures vary in each place.

There is no set level of infection that triggers a local lockdown, but if an area posts more than 40 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people, it is likely that extra restrictions will be considered.
