Andy Burnham news briefing on Manchester – 16:00
Andy Burnham holds a news conference on coronavirus as it emerged that Greater Manchester is to be placed into Tier 3 restrictions unilaterally, after the Government called off talks with local leaders without reaching a compromise.
Burnham: I fought with everything I have during negotiation.
Burnham: ministers had “walked away” from the talks after refusing to offer the £65m called for.
Discussions went on after the midday deadline, and Boris Johnson himself intervened with two phone calls between him and the Greater Manchester Mayor, before they were called off this afternoon.
It is understood that all pubs and bars will be shut for 28 days, unless they are serving substantial meals. Betting shops, casinos, bingo halls, adult gaming centres, and soft play areas will also be forced to close.
