After Leicester, parts of Yorkshire and the north-west of England have recorded the highest rates of new coronavirus infections, according to new data.

However, all but two of the top 10 areas for rates of infection in the week ending 28 June saw a fall compared with the week before, Public Health England reported.

Leicester, however, remains far ahead of the others, with three times as many new cases per 100,000 people as Bradford.

Bedford, the only top 10 place other than Leicester not in the north, has seen its rate of new cases fall by half in a week.

The new data combines two sets of coronavirus tests - those done in hospitals and involving care workers and previously unpublished local figures on tests outside of hospitals.
