AN MP has vowed to push for Bolton to move to Tier 2 in tomorrow's review.

Mark Logan, the elected official for Bolton North East, told constituents that he would be fighting for the borough to have coronavirus restrictions eased.

Speaking in London, Mr Logan said: "I've been looking at the numbers very closely, and as I promised just a couple of weeks ago, if we are under an infection rate of 200 per 100,000 and the other factors are looking pretty good I'm going to be pushing for us.

"That's why on behalf of everyone in Bolton North East I will be lobbying the government hard to make sure we go into Tier 2.

"But given all this great effort from us in Bolton, we must continue to follow the rules and prevent a third wave.

"After all, it's a fragile pandemic and anywhere can easily slip back into the red zone."

The Department of Health said decisions on tier levels were based on a number of factors, including case detection rates in all age groups and, in particular, amongst the over 60s.

How quickly case rates are rising or falling, and the immediate impact on local NHS services and the projected impact are also taken into account.

The final decisions were made by the Prime Minister at the Covid Operations Committee.

Tomorrow's review is expected to follow a similar format.
