‘Gold’ summit to discuss raising alert level for Greater Manchester and Lancashire
Written by on 13 October 2020
A “gold command” meeting will be held tomorrow to discuss whether Greater Manchester and Lancashire should be reclassified and put on “very high” alert, Sky News understands.
If a change is to be made, it would put both areas into Tier 3 of the government’s new lockdown system.
Sky News correspondent Inzamam Rashid said: “It may not mean Tier 3 restrictions are imminent, but a Number 10 source tells me they are ‘concerned’ about Greater Manchester and Lancashire so discussions at the top need to take place.”
