Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised that the tier allocations will be reviewed on 16 December.

In a bid to soften the blow for Tier 3 areas, ministers are promising them access to rapid-result COVID-19 tests to help bring down infections, as well as cash subsidies.

Extra cash will also be on offer to areas placed into Tier 2 and Tier 3.

Scotland has its own four-tier system, while Northern Ireland is in a two week circuit breaker from 27 November to 11 December, and Wales has nationwide rules.

All four UK nations have agreed on a Christmas bubble system from 23-27 December.

The tier systems in England and Scotland are different. Wales and Northern Ireland have not announced a tier system and they are currently applying restrictions nationally, unless they specify extra restrictions in some local areas.
