Northwest Lockdown Special: Ending In Tiers (with Barbara Keeley MP)
Lancashire agrees to go into tier 3 restrictions. Manchester says: not without more financial support. Liverpool is already dealing with the highest level curbs.
For a special programme looking at the pressures of the virus and the government-backed system of restrictions on north-west England, we hear from Barbara Keeley Labour MP for Worsley and Eccles South - which falls within Greater Manchester. She tells Bloomberg Westminster's Sebastian Salek and Roger Hearing that it's right for Manchester to refuse greater curbs without more funding.
Plus, Paul Cherpeau, chief executive of Liverpool Chambers of Commerce, joins to discuss how being under Tier 3 is affecting the city's business sector.
