No 10 urged to restart coronavirus restriction talks with Greater Manchester

Lancashire pubs and bars to close as county moves into Tier 3

And when Sky News deputy political editor Sam Coates asked him if people would die as a result of the row between the leaders of Downing Street and Manchester, he said, "These are very hard decisions and there are damages on both sides, as was indicated".

Speaking at a Downing Street press conference, Boris Johnson described the coronavirus outbreak in the city as "dangerous".

Both the Prime Minister and Labour have warned the situation in Greater Manchester is "grave", while the region's political leaders refuse to accept Tier 3 restrictions without greater financial support for businesses and residents.

He said: "We have said a few times to just get it done and instead of delaying the inevitable and actually move it forward".

Anderson's attack comes after a bitter row between Manchester mayor Andy Burnham and central government escalated, with Burnham threatening legal action if the government forced a Tier 3 status on the city.

"We have to have our local leaders around the table with the Prime Minister or with his representatives to thrash out a deal today".

Matt Hancock said the government had "worked intensively with local leaders" to agree the move.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab accuses Mr Burnham of trying to "hold the Government over a barrel" by resisting tougher restrictions and urges him to "do the right thing by the people of Manchester".

Leaders said they were given no choice on the package of measures, however a Government spokesman said the interventions were a result of consultation with local authorities.

"I feel like everyone doesn't know what's happening or they're just not taking it seriously enough at the minute".

The Tier 2 rules, which mean families can not mix indoors or in bars, cafes and restaurants, have come into effect across parts of North and South East England. The day that passes before action is taken means more people will go to the hospital, more people will be intensive care and more people will die tragically.

And pubs, restaurants and cafes across Northern Ireland had to close their doors to sit-in customers.

- Mr Johnson said the United Kingdom is developing the capacity to manufacture millions of fast-turnaround tests for coronavirus which could deliver results in just 15 minutes.
