Report: London to be placed in Tier 3 today

The British government is planning to move London into Tier 3 of the coronavirus restrictions, a correspondent for the ITV News said on Monday.

According to the report, London MPs held a phone call with Health Minister Helen Whately during which they were told it's "just a matter of when" the capital will be moved into a higher tier due to "soaring" cases of COVID-19 in the city. Secretary of Health Matt Hancock is likely to announce the measure later today, the journalist stated.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, noted that it is "possible" the city will be placed into the higher tier today.
