    BOLTON could be placed under strict national lockdown restrictions next week under plans reportedly being considered by the Prime Minister.
  • Boris Johnson is set to announce the new measures at a press conference on Monday, according to national newspaper The Times, which could see everything closed except essential shops and educational settings.
  • The paper said restrictions could be introduced on Wednesday and remain in place until December 1.
  • However, no final decisions are believed to have been made, and tougher regional measures – such as the introduction of Tier 4 – are also being considered.
