The majority of places in England have been placed under Tier 2 - including Wiltshire.

Prior to the second national lockdown, the county used to be in Tier 1 meaning the only restrictions in place were the rule of six and 10pm curfew for pubs and restaurants.

However, from December 2, harsher rules will be in force - not just in Salisbury and Wiltshire but in most areas in England which have been moved one tier up.

There are only three areas in the country where life will continue in a more normal way after lockdown ends.

These are Cornwall, the Isle of Wight and the Isle of Scilly which thanks to their low number of cases will remain in Tier 1.

Wiltshire's case rates are also low compared to other areas in the South West and the rest of England but they have been on the rise for a number of weeks.

The increase is also mentioned in a rationale published by the government, explaining why Wiltshire has been placed in Tier 2 alongside areas such as London and Liverpool.
