Northern Ireland is to impose the toughest coronavirus restrictions anywhere in the UK — as it faces one of the highest infection rates in Europe.

All pubs and restaurants, hairdressers and beauticians, will shut their doors for a month. Supermarkets and off-licences will not be allowed to sell alcohol after 8pm. Schools will close for two weeks. However shops, takeaways, gyms and childcare facilities will remain open.

Meanwhile Wales is set to ban visitors coming from the worst-affected parts of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

In England the new three-tier system has started with the Liverpool region at the highest alert level.
