Matt Hancock has announced the government's review of coronavirus tiers in England. There is not a great deal of change, but the upshot is that more of England will now be in the toughest tier, with swathes of southern England joining London and Essex in Tier 3. Just two areas will move down a tier, but only Herefordshire will join Cornwall, the Isle of Wight and Scilly Isles in Tier 1.
Moving up from Tier 2 to Tier 3
Hastings and Rother
Portsmouth, Gosport and Havant
Surrey, except Waverley
Moving down from Tier 3 to Tier 2
