Health secretary Matt Hancock is officially announcing the new tier system in the House of Commons this morning.

Differences between the tiers include limits on where households can meet up. In the new tier one, the lowest level of restrictions, the rule of six applies indoors and outdoors.

In tier two, the rule of six remains outdoors but there is no household mixing indoors.

The government has promised that areas in tier 3 - the most severe level - will be able to receive rapid-result Covid-19 tests, with the Army helping out, to help bring down infections as well as cash subsidies.

The system will be regularly reviewed and an area's tier may change; Boris Johnson has previously stated that the tier allocations announced today will be reviewed on 16 December.

This means areas where the spread of Covid-19 slows down over the next few weeks could be moved down a tier before Christmas.

An area could be moved up or down a tier depending on factors such as case detection rates in all age groups, particularly the over-60s, how quickly cases are rising or falling, pressure on the NHS.

An area will be moved up a tier if these factors are not improve.

Earlier this week the government announced that up to three households will be allowed to meet indoors this Christmas. A five-day grace period over the Christmas holidays will enable families to meet between 23-27 December.
