The latest figures from Public Health England show sharp rises in cases of coronavirus in seven large areas.

Bolton remains at the top of the table with 540 new cases in seven days.

Liverpool, Preston, South Tyneside and Manchester - which have seen some lockdown restrictions - have all seen sharp increases week on week.

The figures, for the seven days to September 17, are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent three days (September 18-20) has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

In Bolton, 540 new cases were recorded in the seven days to September 17 – the equivalent of 187.8 per 100,000 people.

Bolton continues to record the highest rate in England, though it is down from 213.2 in the seven days to September 10.

Rossendale has the second highest rate, up sharply from 60.2 to 159.5 with 114 new cases.

Hyndburn is in third place, where the rate has risen from 117.2 to 156.7 with 127 new cases.

Other areas recording sharp increases in their seven-day rates include:

– Liverpool (up from 96.4 to 138.1, with 688 new cases)

– Preston (up from 103.4 to 148.1, with 212 new cases)

– South Tyneside (up from 86.8 to 129.8, with 196 new cases)

– Manchester (up from 83.0 to 121.6, with 672 new cases)
