Norfolk will move into England's tier four of coronavirus restrictions.


The county, currently in tier two, will be in tier four from 00:01 GMT on 26 December, the government announced.

The further restrictions include a ban on travelling in or out of tier four. People can meet one-to-one outside.

All areas of the county have seen an increase in cases to the week 18 December, with the infection rate for Norfolk at 191 per people 100,000. The rate for England is 317 per 100,000.

Health secretary Matthew Hancock, MP for West Suffolk, said East Anglia had seen a "significant number of the new variant" of Covid-19 and cases had risen "sharply".

He said: "It is therefore necessary to put more of the east and south-east of England into tier four."

Ben Jay, general manager of the Great Yarmouth Hippodrome, said he was "devastated" that it would be forced to cancel 34 performances of its Christmas Spectacular circus - which started on 12 December - as a result of the new restrictions.

"It's heart-breaking, it really is heart-breaking because we know there were thousands more people who wanted to come to see the show," he said.

"But we are still pleased we got on for the people who have been able to see it so far."

He said the circus had five sell-out shows left before the tier four restrictions came into effect and was going to "make the most of it".

"We will be back next year," he added.
