In today's national coronavirus news:

The government announced today which tiers each part of the country would be in when lockdown lifts on December 2.

More than 55 million people in England will continue to face strict coronavirus curbs after the national lockdown lifts.

Only the Isle of Wight, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly - accounting for little over 1 per cent of England's population - have been placed in the lowest Tier 1 set of restrictions, with all other areas set to face more serious limits to their freedom.

Large swathes of the Midlands, North East and North West are in the most restrictive Tier 3, but the majority of people - including London - will be in Tier 2.

Some 23.3 million people - 41.5 per cent of the population of England - will face the most stringent restrictions, while 32 million people, which is 57.3 per cent of the population, will be in the second tier.
