London is set to go back into the tier two level of coronavirus restrictions from December 3 after the second lockdown ends on December 3 despite clear signs the low infection rates in the capital are dropping.

Businesses and MPs have demanded that the UK's largest city should be in Tier 1 to help the economy recover some of the billions it has lost since the lockdowns began in March.

The infection rates in the worst-hit boroughs are still outside the top 100 in the league table of 317 authorities in England.

But Boris Johnson is expected to ignore their pleas when he makes the announcement on which tier England's regions will be in from next month.

But the rules are expected to be tighter even than before, with speculation mounting over whether pubs will only be allowed to open if serving 'substantial meals' with drinks.

Jace Tyrrell, chief executive of New West End Company, told the Evening Standard: 'Reopening in a safe and sustainable way from 3 December is vital to ensure that retailers and leisure operators get the best possible opportunity to make up some of the billions in lost trade this season.

'In order for this to be most effective, we hope the Government recognises the latest figures we have seen in the capital and will see fit to place London at the very least in Tier 2, if not Tier 1.'

Boris Johnson is expected to reveal on Thursday which tiers will apply to each part of Britain, with no decision taken on whether London will go back into tier two until the 11th hour.
