Leicester MPs demand answers on local lockdown

On 30 June, non-essential retail in Leicester was asked to shut. 100 days later, the people of Leicester are still in a local lockdown.
People are unable to meet in private houses and gardens, and are not allowed to visit their loved ones in care homes.
We now need to know why Leicester is still subject to these restrictions when other cities with higher infection rates aren’t, and it’s time for the Government to give us answers on what needs to happen for people in Leicester to visit their families again.
I have released a joint statement with Jon Ashworth, MP for Leicester South, to mark 100 days since the city entered lockdown.
