  2. Windsor and Maidenhead to stay in lowest Covid tier

    The government has agreed to allow Windsor and Maidenhead to stay at "medium risk" and in the lowest tier.

    It comes a week after Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council asked the ministers to consider moving into the "high-risk" tier two.

    Since then the number of positive Covid-19 cases across the borough has slowed in the last week.

    Leader of the council Andrew Johnson said: "We have requested to stay in tier one for now pending further review, to which the government has agreed.

    "However, our numbers are that we remain on the cusp of tier two and all the additional restrictions on our loves this would bring."

    The local authority said it would keep the situation under review.
