LONDON, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Tighter COVID-19 lockdowns could be imposed on more parts of northern England by the British government on Thursday and Health Secretary Matt Hancock will address parliament, a minister said.

“Well, as I say, I’m not going to speculate. Matt Hancock is going to make a statement to parliament as to where we are at but you can clearly see the numbers.” (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge, Editing by Paul Sandle)
