MILLIONS of Brits could be forced into a new Tier 4 lockdown that goes even further than Tier 3, the country has been warned.
Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson aid he is not opposed to moving the city into Tier 4 “if necessary”, following the death of his own brother from covid, adding the he would be reviewing the success of Tier 3 measures soon.
Although the Government only announced three tiers when its 'medium risk, 'high risk', very high risk' categorisation came in last month, talk of a stricter fourth level being introduced has risen in recent days.
Yesterday PM Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock refused to deny Britain could face extra Tier 4 restrictions, simply saying the Government would "rule nothing out".
Although it remains exactly unclear what the Tier 4 rules would be, it would almost certainly ban household mixing outside as well as indoors and could even see full 'circuit breaker' local lockdowns introduced.
