There were 364 new coronavirus cases recorded in Milton Keynes today, according to the latest data from Public Health England.

It means the case rate in Milton Keynes has now reached a record high of 657.6 cases per 100,000 people.

That's a large jump from yesterday's case rate of 573.7 cases per 100,000 people.

Meanwhile, nearby Northamptonshire is set to be escalated to Tier 3 measures from this coming Saturday.
