The Mayor of Greater Manchester has advised residents in Bolton and Trafford to ignore the lifting of restrictions on socialising that began at midnight

Both Boroughs have seen rising cases of Covid-19 since the Health Secretary announced the lifting on Friday

Speaking on Radio Four’s Today Programme the Mayor said that his advice to people in Bolton and Trafford was to ignore the change in regulations while describing the lifting of restrictions in some areas and not others “completely illogical”.

He told the programme

“We find ourselves at a completely unsustainable position this morning – that’s the politest way I can put it.

Overnight, we’ve had restrictions released in two boroughs where we’ve got a rising number of cases – in one case, in the red zone. And neighbouring boroughs are still under restrictions but with much lower numbers of cases.

These restrictions were always hard to explain to the public but they are completely illogical now”
