Threee-tier system has been the main part of new guidline released by the government that will enable there to be a more clear and simpler approach. The Liverpool region will be on a "very high" Covid alert level from Wednesday, the highest of a new three-tier system.

England's chief medical officer said he was not confident the measures "would be enough to get on top of" the virus.

Prof Chris Whitty said it was likely local authorities in "very high" alert areas would have to go further.

But the prime minister ruled out the "extreme route" of a national lockdown "right now".

Meanwhile, minutes from a meeting of the government's science advisors last month revealed they suggested a short national lockdown to curb virus cases.
