The government is treating the North “like a petri dish” for local lockdown experiments as harsher restrictions are considered, the mayor of the Liverpool City Region has said.

With coronavirus cases continuing to rise across the North of England and current local lockdown measures failing to stop the increase, the government is considering tightening measures only weeks after introducing new ones.

Liverpool City Region Mayor Steve Rotherham told GMB: “What we’ve seen is an ever-widening North-South divide in measures being taken.

“Quite simply the North should not be a petri dish for experimentation by central government.”

Politicians across the North have criticised the Government over plans to close pubs and restaurants next week to tackle rising coronavirus cases.

The proposals, which have not been confirmed, appeared on the front pages of The Times,

Local leaders in the North East have criticised the government for spreading “confusion and chaos” with its new local lockdown rules.

Health secretary Matt Hancock announced a tightening of measures for Northumberland, Newcastle, North and South Tyneside, Gateshead, Sunderland and County Durham on Monday.

Under the new rules his department said laws would ban inter-household mixing indoors, including in pubs and restaurants.

But local leaders criticised the policy, accusing the government of a “very knee-jerk” reaction to rising infections in the region.

Nick Forbes, the leader of Newcastle County Council, said this morning: “The problem that we’ve got is not just that the secretary of state has made an announcement without any kind of understanding about the impact on affected businesses, and the potential for job losses.

Health secretary Matt Hancock said tougher restrictions were being brought in than those imposed a week ago.

He said there will now be “legal restrictions” meaning indoor mixing between households in any setting will be against the law.

The incident rate of coronavirus across the region is now more than 100 cases per 100,000.

Mr Hancock, told the House of Commons that cases in the region had “risen sharply”,

The new legal restrictions will come into place on Wednesday, the Department of Health said.

Under the regulations that came into force on 18 September, almost two million people in Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland, and County Durham were banned from socialising with other people outside of their own households or support bubbles in private homes
