Latest Covid cases in Yorkshire as councils want local lockdowns lifted

A further 110 people in Yorkshire have tested positive for coronavirus in the last 24 hours.

The biggest jump was recorded in Leeds with 30 new cases.

Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees, which have had stricter measures imposed from late July, have recorded fewer than that.

A higher number in new cases does not necessarily mean the virus is spreading more, it could also be down to the number of tests being conducted.

York, Barnsley and Hull saw the smallest increase, recording one new case each.

Overall, 34,426 people have so far contracted coronavirus in Yorkshire and 2,591 people who tested positive for the disease have sadly lost their lives.

It comes after West Yorkshire councils called on the government to release all areas from local lockdown measures.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock is expected to give his weekly update on restrictions on Friday.
