AYLESBURY Vale is set to be placed in the lowest tier of England’s new three-tier coronavirus restriction system.

The district, which has recorded 33.6 covid-19 cases per 100,000 people in the past seven days, falls under the same measures as the rest of Buckinghamshire’s patches in the ‘medium risk’ category.

A placement in Tier One of the new triple-tier system means Aylesbury Vale will follow national rules.

Aylesbury Vale includes Aylesbury, Haddenham, Buckingham, Stoke Mandeville, Aston Clinton, Wendover and more.
