Northumberland County Council have apparently called on the Government to introduce greater lockdown restrictions.

Was this discussed at council meetings with our local area councillors? 

My money is on 'No' but @Malcolm Robinson & @Bill Crosby could prove me wrong😌

Very quiet!

Newcastle upon Tyne. 499 cases per 100,000 people in the latest week 29 Sep-5 Oct.

1,510 cases in the latest week 29 Sep-5 Oct +760 compared with the previous week
5,420 total cases to 08 Oct

Today it is announced that another 1600 students have tested positive in Newcastle Universities!

Why should Northumberland Council ask to be grouped with the likes of Newcastle?

Did I miss something on tonight's news? I don't read newspapers and only rely on the daily TV news for updates. This evening the wife was in the kitchen when the NE news started and announced the new figures so I rewound and put the TV on hold until she came in so she could here the updated for herself (I'm often accused of not listening and distorting the facts ☺️).  I haven't seen anything about NCC wanting to be grouped with Newcastle so we would be placed under the same restrictions as Newcastle to try and reduced the spread of the virus.

I thought it was the government, based on the number of new cases for Northumberland, Newcastle  etc., that would have the say in what restrictions were put in place.

Then it would be down to the minority to ignore the restrictions, party on and spread the virus among those that don't get many symptoms and hospitalised, so they could eventually spread the virus out to the more vulnerable.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
