Lancashire expected to be placed under tighter lockdown measures
Lancashire is to be the latest part of the UK to face strict coronavirus lockdown rules - with drastic new curbs being introduced this weekend, Sky News understands. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told senior MPs from the county that he will announce the clampdown in the morning and the rules will come into force on Saturday.The coronavirus restrictions, similar to those being introduced in North East England, will cover the whole of Lancashire with the exception of two thirds of the seaside resort of Blackpool.
Whilst another parent, Morgan Alex, also recalled: "It sounded like she really appreciated lockdown for the extra time she's been able to spend with her family and seeing the positives in that."
And whilst Duchess Catherine appreciates it has been difficult for people to meet up in a socially distanced way, she feels it's important for people to talk and listen.
Speaking at a socially distant meeting at the Old English Garden in Battersea Park, Duchess Catherine shared: "Does it help emotionally too? You feel less judged? Everybody needs to have those friendships. It must be difficult to meet up socially-distancing ... It's good being able to listen and being listened while being off guard. It is so important for your emotional well-being. With your experiences it's so important that you've been through it.
"Without what you are providing, that form of relationship, you can feel so isolated. You should be very proud."
Duchess Catherine spent lockdown at their family home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk but she is now at Kensington Palace, London.
