Addressing what the challenges would be of policing Leicester’s lockdown, the Chief Constable of Leicestershire Police, Simon Cole, told the PA news agency: “The challenges is there’s a major public health crisis here in Leicester.

“We’ve had twice as many cases in the last week here in Leicester than the whole of London has had so clearly for policing we need to work with partners, we need to work with local communities and between us we need to get that infection rate of Covid down all across Leicester and Leicestershire.”

Asked if the data suggested that there were particular areas of Leicester that needed more policing than others, Mr Cole said: “We’re trying to make sure we’ve got a presence all across the area because this is about where people live, it’s about where people work, and it’s perhaps about where people have been gathering so we need to be in all those kind of places.
