And more than 100 new cases have been reported in every other area of Berkshire on Wednesday, October 27.

A total of 771 cases were recorded in Berkshire on that day.

It was also the first time over 100 cases were recorded in Bracknell Forest since July 15, when 148 cases were confirmed.

A spokesperson for Bracknell Forest Council said that the council is ‘ready’ to implement the Government’s Plan B winter restrictions earlier this week.

Plan B involves rolling out controversial ‘vaccine passports’ for access to some events, the reintroduction of the mask mandate for places like supermarkets and doctors surgeries, and could even mean the return to home working.
