We head into the weekend with
millions more people subject to tougher curbs on daily life. In Wales, 3.1 million people will be told to stay at home from 18:00 BST as a 17-day “firebreak” lockdown begins and all but essential shops close. Meanwhile, overnight, Greater Manchester’s population of 2.8 million entered England’s toughest tier of coronavirus restrictions – forcing bars that don’t serve food to shut – and South Yorkshire folk will join them from midnight. Check out the latest rules where you live.
