  3. 'Most' Covid transmission 'between workplace and household'

    Most of the coronavirus transmission in the West Midlands is happening between workplaces and households, health officials say.

    "It is people going out to work, catching it at work and bringing it home," Clive Wright, the regional convenor for the Department of Health and Social Care in the West Midlands, told a regional press briefing, highlighting small and medium-sized businesses.

    "There may also be instances where people are letting their guard down, but most of it is workplace to household and household back into the workplace," he said.

    This could in part, he added, be why Sandwell and other areas of the Black Country were particularly affected at the moment, as the area had a high concentration of small businesses.

    More than 60 suspected Covid outbreaks in offices were recorded in the first two weeks of the current lockdown in England, a BBC investigation has found. Current restrictions state people should only travel to work if they cannot reasonably do their job from home.

  4. Weather warnings for snow revised

    A weather warning for snow on Saturday has been updated, and now only affects parts of Shropshire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

    However new warnings have been issued that will affect the whole of the region from 21:00 on Monday through to Wednesday evening.

    About 5 to 10cm of snow is expected on higher areas, said the Met Office.

    The damage near the Hillmorton junction, south of Rugby in Warwickshire, has been caused by recent heavy rainfall, says Network Rail.

    Specialist earthwork engineers testing the site show the ground is still moving underneath several tracks on the West Coast Mainline.

    All services are still running but are being diverted via Northampton, adding about 30 minutes to journey times.
