England's coronavirus hotspots revealed with case rates for each local authority

The latest figures for each local authority have been released.

Blackburn with Darwen has remained the UK's top coronavirus hotspot following a marginal rise in its number of coronavirus cases per 100,000.

The figures for each local authority in England have been revealed with the release of the rolling seven-day rate of new cases of Covid-19.

Blackburn with Darwen's rate has increased from 81.9 per 100,000 to 85.3 per 100,000.

The figures, for the seven days to July 27 are based on tests carried out in laboratories (pillar one of the Government’s testing programme) and in the wider community (pillar two).

Leicester's cases have reduced following the local lockdown there, dropping from 65.6 per 100,000 to 57.7 per 100,000.
