Lockdown extended for Leicester
It has just been announced that Leicester is to enter an extended period of lockdown, with extra funding going to all principle authorities in Leicestershire to help support businesses and those forced to self-isolate.
Schools will close and non-essential shops will also shut down from tomorrow, Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the House of Commons this evening.
As such all Leicestershire parish and town councils are advised to put any plans for face to face council meetings on hold until further notice.
People living in Leicester are being urged to "stay at home as much as they can" and the nationwide easing of lockdown planned for 4 July does not apply to them.
