    It means the case rate in Milton Keynes has now reached a record high of 690.6 cases per 100,000 people.

    That's a small jump from yesterday's case rate of 657.6 cases per 100,000 people.

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