A further 146 people have tested positive for coronavirus in Yorkshire in the last 24 hours.

This means that 31,658 people have now contracted the virus in the county since the outbreak first hit.

The biggest jump was again recorded in Bradford with 41 newly confirmed cases, followed by Calderdale and Kirklees – all three areas have been placed into lockdown on July 31.

Bradford has recorded 5,221 confirmed cases of the virus during the pandemic and currently has the fourth-highest infection rate in the country with 967 cases per 100,000 people.
