England – Details of the Nottingham and surrounding area (Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Broxtowe, Gedling, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood, Nottingham and Rushcliffe). The restrictions come into effect after midnight tonight (not today as I said yesterday – they shifted back a day earlier in the week. Apologies). The restrictions are far more extensive than in other Tier 3 areas and include for the first time amusement arcades (FECs) as well as Adult Gaming Centres. Details can be found here:
Scotland – Each of Scotland’s 32 local authorities have today been allocated to one of the new Scottish Government’s five levels of restrictions. Anything at level 3 and above will require members’ amusement arcades to close and pubs will only be able to open without serving alcohol up until 6.00 p.m. As expected the Central Belt and a wider part of the country has been placed in Tier 3.
These new levels come into force at 06.00 on Monday 2nd November. A full list can be found below:-SG-Tier-levels.docx (39 downloads)
