London mayor expecting Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions for capital

London mayor Sadiq Khan has said that he expects the capital to be moved into the Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions. Mr Khan told the London Assembly: “Final conversations with ministers are ongoing around this as we meet – but I expect ministers to make an announcement to Parliament later today.” He said the decision was based on “expert public health and scientific advice” about what is necessary to save lives in the city. “In addition to the restrictions already in place, this would mean different households in London not being allowed to mix indoors,” he said. “Nobody wants to see more restrictions – but this is deemed to be necessary in order to protect Londoners lives by myself, London council leaders and by ministers.”
