London is going into Tier 2 on Saturday 17 October, which means no mixing of households indoors. Speaking at London’s City Hall, Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said there was “simply no other option”.

“Nobody wants to see more restrictions but this is deemed to be necessary in order to protect Londoners,” he said.

The Mayor has backed the call by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer for a temporary national “circuit-breaker” to slow the spread of the disease and he said he is continuing to press the government for more financial support, adding that “we’ve got a difficult winter ahead”.

The three rules for Tier 2 are:

  • No household mixing indoors
  • Rule of six will apply outdoors
  • Pubs and restaurants to shut at 10.00pm
