Separate households are banned from meeting indoors from today in Greater Manchester, East Lancashire and parts of West Yorkshire after a rise in coronavirus cases.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News, "When you face a pandemic like this, it is important to move quickly if that's what needed."
