Boris Johnson will announce pubs and restaurants in Manchester and across the North, he must be shut down to deal with the second wave of coronavirus cases.
The prime minister is expected to make the announcement on Monday.
As the incidence of coronavirus has increased in most parts of the north, the government is reportedly ready to tighten restrictions for about ten million people in the north of England.
The Times reported that the prime minister would deny the growing revolt, some of his own MPs and ordered that pubs and restaurants in Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle must be closed.
It said the prime minister had signed a lockdown this evening, along with new financial aid measures and “easing restrictions in England”.
The study said Mr Johnson was believed to have planned to announce new restrictions today but the ‘Cabinet Division’ was late.

The number of cases is increasing across Greater Manchester and nationally, the number of deaths per day is also on the rise.
The government says there are 14,162 more lab-confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the UK as of 9am on Wednesday. This brings the total number of cases in the UK to 544,275.

This suggests that growth in the case is still marked but has slowed – doubling every week.

Stockport and seven other boroughs have seen their infection rates rise, although they are more than half the huge population of students in Manchester.
Only Bolton, under long-term local lockdown restrictions, has arrested the sharpest increase seen elsewhere, registering 255.3 cases of coronavirus per week per 100,000 people in the region.
Bolton has seen 734 positive cases in the week since October 4, a slight increase of only 32 compared to the previous week.
