COVID-19 - London Likely to Move to Highest Level of RestrictionsHealth | December 14, 2020, Monday // 14:35| views
London faces a move to tier three - England's highest level of coronavirus restrictions - in the coming days, the BBC has been told.
Ministers and officials are said to be "deeply concerned" about a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases across the capital.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan urged ministers to act "with open eyes" and avoid damaging the capital's economy.
He said tier three could have a "catastrophic consequence" for hospitality, culture and retail, as household mixing indoors is banned.
Council leaders in London are understood to be alarmed at the projected rise in cases and some are pushing for a "tier three plus" regime with tougher restrictions than tier three on its own.
Other parts of UK may also be moved up to tier three, which would also see hotels largely closed, sports fans excluded from events, and residents advised against travelling to other areas.
