Bill Wiggin, MP for North Herefordshire, has given his reaction after Herefordshire was named in Tier 1 of the Government’s coronavirus restrictions.

Mr Wiggin said:

“We have been doing very well in Herefordshire because our population is responsible, careful and sadly, quite often, vulnerable. Moving to Tier 1 will be a boost to our hospitality industry and I am sure we can trust our people to continue to use their common sense when protecting themselves.

With the Christmas amnesty fast approaching I would urge people to be vigilant and respectful to others when out and about which will allow us to keep our rates low and ease the pressure on our fantastic emergency services.”
