COVID-19 UK: Mayor rejects tougher lockdown rules in northern England
Sky, 02 Oct 2020
Tougher coronavirus restrictions are being imposed on four new areas - but one mayor says they are "damaging" and he will not accept them.

He asked them to avoid "all but essential travel" - meaning people can still go to work and school.
