The announcement that the lockdown will be tightened in Leicester following a rise in coronavirus cases in the city leads most of the front pages. The Daily Mirror describes the move as “Britain’s first local lockdown”, with the city’s non-essential shops and schools forced to close again – except for vulnerable pupils and children of key workers.

Pubs and restaurants in Leicester will not be able to reopen on 4 July with the rest of England and a proposed relaxation of shielding on 6 July has also been cancelled in the city, the Telegraph reports. The paper says the action was so sensitive for the government that its announcement was repeatedly postponed on Monday evening as a succession of meetings were held with cabinet ministers and local officials.
