Millions of people in England are bracing to find out what Tier of  coronavirus restrictions they will be put under when the national lockdown ends next week.

The country's three-tier lockdown system has been toughened up in Boris Johnson's new winter plan, revealed in the House of Commons this afternoon.

The return of hard-won freedoms including reopening pubs and restaurants, gigs, sport, and indoor socialising will remain off the menu at the highest level at least  – Tier 3.

But the big question mark remains – which tier will your own area be in when current measures end on December 2?

The PM said he plans to announce which areas will fall under what tiers on Thursday.

With families and businesses alike waiting to find out what restrictions they will face from next week, the latest infection rates figures out today give some clues with a ranking of the worst-hit coronavirus hot-spots.

Do you live in one of the top-ranked coronavirus hot-spots? See the full list below…

  • 5 things that will decide which tier you're in when national lockdown ends

Vast areas of northern England have been under some form of toughened restrictions for months already.

Much of the region is still battling the highest infection rates.

But drops in former hot-spots such as Liverpool renewed hopes today of loosening restrictions to come for some northern areas after months of struggling.

This week some southern areas soared up the list, with parts of the county of Kent overtaking Northern areas to becoming leading coronavirus hotspots.

  • New Tier 1 lockdown restrictions: Rules on what you can and can’t do

The government is not assessing which areas will go into higher tiers based on their infection rates alone.

Officials and scientists will be analysing the rates alongside a range of other complex factors.

Decision-makers will be considering factors including how badly over-60s are affected, the 'R' transmission rate, how fast cases are rising and falling, and how under-pressure an area's local NHS is.

The full list of coronavirus infection rates by area

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency, based on Public Health England data published on November 23 on the Government's coronavirus dashboard.
Here is the list in full.

From left to right, it reads: name of local authority; rate of new cases in the seven days to November 19; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to November 19; rate of new cases in the seven days to November 12; number (in brackets) of new cases recorded in the seven days to November 12.
