Hundreds of high street businesses that have been forced to close due to coronavirus restrictions will get additional support from next month, Rishi Sunak has announced.

The Chancellor said firms that have been forced to close will get £3,000 every three weeks - up from the current £1,300 cap.

The new help was announced on Friday as the government was forced to make another U-turn amid rising coronavirus restrictions across the UK.

It comes as ministers are preparing to unveil a new 'three tier' lockdown in the North from Monday - a move that will likely force hundreds of hospitality venues to close.
