Breaking News ! A key scientist has warned that Bradford and Doncaster are “clearly of concern”, with high rates of coronavirus. Imperial College London’s Professor Neil Ferguson, who used to advise the government, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “It’s inevitable we will (have further local outbreaks), we are relaxing lockdown rules and that means that contacts in the population are going up and that’s a very variable process.” Asked about Bradford and Doncaster, he said: “Those are areas, where not as high as Leicester, but they have some of the highest numbers of cases per 100,000 of the population, which is the relevant measure, so they’re clearly of concern.” His comments come after it was reported on Tuesday that 36 other towns and cities are on alert. Yorkshire had three on that list which included Doncaster, Wakefield and York. But Doncaster's director of public health has already dismissed rumours that the town could be heading for a Leicester-style lockdown. Dr Rupert Suckling said while Doncaster had seen a "high number" of positive Covid-19 cases in late May there had been a significant reduction in cases since mid-June. Dr Suckling said: "More data is now becoming available nationally and this will be open to scrutiny and speculation.
