UK coronavirus live: PM warns against taking foot from 'throat of beast' as Whitty says do not hug elderly relatives

The mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, has expressed disappointment over the city being put into tier 3. He told the Guardian he had hoped that a recent fall in the Covid numbers might have “earned” the city a place in tier 2.

The city council estimated the month-long lockdown will have cost the city around £54m. The tier status will add to the burden.

Rees said the impact on the hospitality and night-time economy – 23,000 jobs – was particularly worrying. He said:

As well as trying to take on the virus, my thoughts go to how we are going to support businesses and jobs.
