North East and Newcastle in Tier 2: latest local lockdown rules


The North East and Tees Valley have been placed under Tier 2 restrictions.

This includes Newcastle, South Tyneside, North Tyneside, Gateshead, Sunderland, Durham, Northumberland, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, Stockton-on-Tees, Darlington and Hartlepool.

Local authorities in the north east of England that face being put into Tier 3 have agreed to oppose any such Government moves, Gateshead Council leader Martin Gannon said. Leaders insist that data points to the coronavirus curve flattening in their area.

The leaders of Northumberland, Newcastle, South and North Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham held a meeting and agreed their opposition, stating that the current set of measures were working and needed more time, he said.

He added: “There’s a bit of confusion about what the Government is looking at, we think it is based on the number of cases in over-60s.
