According to Public Health England data, nearly 3,000 Covid-19 cases have been confirmed in Leicester since the start of the coronavirus epidemic.

Sir Peter said he had received an email from the Government overnight and "it seems they're suggesting we continue the present level of restriction for a further two weeks beyond July 4".
He said: "I'm very angry and very frustrated this morning because the 9am meeting has been cancelled by the government officials who were due to meet with us".
