Berkshire is one of the areas set to move from Tier 2 restrictions to Tier 3 on Saturday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has announced. This means the Queen and Prince Philip, who have been self-isolating at Windsor Castle for the most part of 2020, are going to be hit by harsher restrictions at the end of this week.

Alongside the region of Windsor, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Peterborough, Hertfordshire, Surrey, except Waverley, Hastings and Rother, Portsmouth, Gosport, Havant will also be under the strictest Tier 3 measures from Saturday. 

Mr Hancock said this tier review was due to the fact that coronavirus cases have gone up 46 percent across the south-east of England in the last week.
