Boris Johnson unveiled the new “simplified” lockdown system for England on Monday (October 12) in a speech to the House of Commons.

He said that areas classed as Tier 1, the lowest level – also described as ‘medium’, would be subject to the current national lockdown rules – mainly the rule of six and the 10pm curfew on bars and restaurants.

London has been confirmed to be in that category.

According to Pippa Crerar, the Mirror’s political editor, local leaders in London “feel it’s only a matter of time” before the stricter lockdown is brought in here.

And Sadiq Khan has said that the stricter lockdown could be brought in to the capital before the week is out.
