City MP criticises 'chaotic' local lockdown announcement

The way the public was told about new local lockdown rules coming into force in West Yorkshire was "chaotic in the extreme", according to one Bradford MP.

Last night, health secretary Matt Hancock tweeted to say that following a spike in coronavirus cases in Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees, those areas would be subject to extra rules.

Designed to slow the spread of the virus, separate households living in those areas from midnight have been banned from meeting each other indoors and in their gardens.

Speaking to the BBC, the Labour MP for Bradford South Judith Cummins said the way people were told was "terrible and appalling".

She said: "I think it's very chaotic in the extreme. I've been out to visit one of my businesses this morning and they're confused.

"It's not the action sometimes, it's how it's communicated. If you're trying to get the public to buy in to a public health message, you need to communicate that effectively and properly with some some time for people to adjust, not a couple of hours.

"I think it's a terrible and appalling way to communicate. We're talking about people's livelihoods and people's lives. To do it with a couple of hours' notice is simply not good enough."

Bradford South: Labour hold

Judith Cummins has been re-elected as the MP for Bradford South, with a significantly decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Narinder Sekhon by 2,346 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

Kulvinder Manik of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Alun Griffiths came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 40,000 people, 57.6% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Alun Griffiths (Liberal Democrat) and Matthew Edwards (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
