    Bolton will find out later today whether the coronavirus rules in place across the borough will change as we head into the new year.
  • Health Secretary Matt Hancock is due to outline which areas will see changes to the measures currently in place when he addresses the House of Commons this afternoon.
  • Rising infection rates in many areas suggests that all changes will see areas moved up a tier, forcing stricter rules on the people living there.
  • Although cases are rising in Greater Manchester, Bolton is reporting the lowest infection rate across all ten boroughs.
