Breaking News ! The Government and Andy Burnham remain at loggerheads over tighter coronavirus restrictions in Greater Manchester. As of this evening, the Prime Minister and leaders in Greater Manchester still haven't reached an agreement on how to tackle the region's rising infection rate. But in contrast to Mayor Andy Burnham's fighting talk, people in north Manchester are fed up and confused. For some another lockdown seems inevitable.

"We've got to do what we've got to do and if that means going into lockdown, we'll go into lockdown," he said. "I don't think we can keep blaming people for the rising infection rate. "Everyone's trying to keep going and people have got to work. "My preference would be to not to lockdown again because then we can carry on as we are." Phillip says he realises there are difficult decisions that have to be made. "The issue now is that we just don't know how things are going to go," he added. "The most important thing is the infection rate and if that means another lockdown we'll have to do it. "Some people will struggle with that but it's better than dying."

He believes that the Government's 'half in-half out' approach to the restrictions isn't working and that people 'don't care' anymore. Salim Alaya outside his place of work, Juci-Licious.

People are literally right next to you. "People are not bothered. The 50-50 approach isn't working in my opinion. "I think we should lockdown for two weeks and then if we need to lockdown for another two weeks then do that. "I'm from Tunisia and what they are doing is very clear. "No one is allowed out after 8pm and only one family member is allowed in a supermarket at a time. They have the army outside and it works.

. Marie Rennison is worried about the impact on local businesses (Image: ABNM Photography) Marie Rennison, 38, from Bury, said: "My main worry is for people’s jobs. "I work at a college with students who have special needs, so my job hasn’t been affected. "It’s just been hard for the students because normally they’d be out and about, and now we can’t do that with them. That’s hard. "If we go into stricter measures again, I worry about all the smaller local businesses. "One of the butchers’ shops I go to is really struggling.

"Everything just seems so up in the air. "I’ve tended not to go out [since Covid] because to me it’s not the same. "When I go out, I go out out, so I’m waiting until the bars and discos can open properly again.” Gwen Allen is prepared for another lockdown (Image: ABNM Photography) Gwen Allen, 60, from Blackley, says that the Covid restrictions have become 'too confusing' for people to follow. Gwen said she wouldn't have a problem with tighter restrictions, should the region go into 'Tier 3'. "All I've heard on the news this week is 'they're going to do this, they're going to do that'," says Gwen. "It's confusing - no one can keep up with it all. "I think it was too early to open the pubs and everything else when they did. "Now we're in a situation where it's coming back and we're going to be locked down again. "I think Boris opened everything far too quickly. "I wouldn't be bothered if the pubs closed - something needs shutting. "I was locked in for three months because I'm vulnerable to the virus. "It wouldn't bother me if I had to do it again, and I think it needs to happen." Meanwhile some people have simply had enough of the restrictions altogether. "I'd just like to see my family" says Noamaan Mirza (Image: ABNM Photography) Noamaan Mirza, 34, said he just wants to be able to see his family members. "If we're all stuck at home, we can't see anyone," said the technician. "I have a big family who I can't see. I would like to be able to see them again."
