LONDON (AFP) – Millions more people in northern England face stricter coronavirus rules next week, the government said yesterday as it perseveres with a localised response to surging case rates.

From Monday, nearly 2.4 million residents in five districts of West Yorkshire, including in the city of Leeds, will be barred from socialising with other households indoors.

The public has also been told to avoid unnecessary travel.
